    "..." is this an acuna?

    What is the name for ...

    I thought it was called acuna, but now I'm not so sure.

    Is it proper punctuation?

    thanks

    Did you mean "hakuna matata" phrase from "Lion King"?

    You might want to use 'acuna' or italicise it.

    Thanks Thomasz, you are correct. I eventually found it in some obscure grammar website. Surprising how the ellipsis is misused ...

    Sorry couldn't resist.
