Assume I have a quote as shown below:
"John ate his lunch and went for a walk."
If I was citing this quote in an article, I could condense it using "...":
"John...went for a walk."
However, assume I had a quote that already contains "..." for grammatical effect:
"John whistled quietly...all was still and peaceful. He continued walking."
How could I cite this quote, if I wanted to break it up? Would I need 6 dots as shown below?
"John whistled quietly......[and] continued walking."
