This paper looks into classification and characteristics of elliptical expressions in Winter Sonata . Elliptical expressions consist of morphologic ellipsis, semantic ellipsis and contextual ellipsis. Morphologic ellipsis was the most in postpositional elliptical example sentences. Meanwhile, subjective postposition ellipsis was the most in there. In condition of speaker and listener precisely acknowledged the content, it had subject ellipsis, predicate ellipsis, objective ellipsis, postposition ellipsis and syllable ellipsis to get rid of prolixity and boredom. From speaker’s side, sematic ellipsis that grasps speaker’s mind by opponent without definite refuse, especially indirect elliptical expressions, are not making opponents to be upset and maintain close relationship. Since it is based with deep consideration of opponent and it is not a complete sentence that omits the end of the sentence, so it is important to find intention of speaker that continues at the end of sentence. Contextual ellipses mostly consist of request elliptical expressions. Only one or two elliptical expressions that related with order, limit, enumeration, restriction and suggestion are in example and there is no permission elliptical expression. In literary style, it is hard to express as ellipsis since speaker needs to deliver what speaker meant to opponent. That``s why most of elliptical expressions are occurred in conversations as what shows in main material. Since It can sympathize with opponent indirectly, conversation can be smooth and it can leave lingers. There are many elliptical expressions occurred between close friends. Because opponent can understand speaker’s intention. It shows unique sympathy of elliptical sentence that is hard to feel from normal sentence by omitting contents, continuously mentioned subject and words in conversation. For vague expressions such as equivocating parts that can’t be spoken directly, it is related with consideration of opponents by decreasing prolixity which is aim of elliptical expression. Japanese is important to precisely understand intention of speaker, contextual flow and situation rather than actual meaning of sentence itself.
