In English languages Ellipses are very common and widely used. Few are easy to pick up but few others are really hard to get. for non native speakers it's really very hard to pick up a difficult ellipsis.
Picking up ellipses from a given sentence is one thing and deciding when to omit some part as an ellipsis in a sentence while writing is a different ballgame altogether.
Today while writing a sentence I am put into that test.
Please advice me while writing when to correctly omit some part as an ellipsis.
I was writing this sentence -
The new design of Twitter profile is more of a Facebook profile than (it's been) never before.
I was planning to include "it's been" part as an ellipsis. Please help me out. And I want to know how to decide, so the answer shouldn't be necessarily limited to this particular sentence that I quoted. I want a general approach.
Thanking you in advance.
