    Default "..." 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"?

    more info here:

    Hopefully the page will be of some help to you.

    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.
