This paper presents a history of the function of ellipsis and interruption, and of the way they are represented by punctuation marks, between the mid-seventeenth and the late nineteenth centuries, with special regard to pragmatic and text typological aspects of the issue. From the middle of the seventeenth century onwards, the omission of words or larger chunks of text, as well as the interruption of sentences, were represented in Hungarian printed documents by an ellipsis mark, a dash, or three or more dots. This paper discusses the functional and formal relationship of those three punctuation marks, and touches upon the interfering role of printing houses in their use.
