User: When using an ellipsis to indicate an omission from a quotation, (Points : 2) do not include spaces between the periods. use four dots or periods if a deletion occurs at the end of the sentence being quoted, three to signal the deletion, and one to end the sentence. if you include a parenthetical citation, use only three dots or periods and omit the final period normally positioned after the parenthetical reference. if the quotation is taken from a poem and the ellipsis points are used to indicate the omission of an entire line of verse, use exactly four dots or periods instead of the usual three.

Weegy: a) do not include spaces between the periods.

Weegy: when using text messages and email communications I do not always use formal communication or writing, more like common text messaging lingo if you will.

So there for these types of communication limit our ability to perform formal writing in terms of team work and so forth, in both the academic and professional environments.
