Every language uses elliptical structures, but how frequently nominal, verbal and clasual ellipsis occur in Hindi and English language, is the focus of this study. This paper is an effort to analyze ellipsis in two short stories: a work in Hindi language (a short story by Munshi Premchand), and a work in English language (a short story by Ernest Hemingway). The comparison is supported by the statistical analysis. The goal of this paper is to illustrate the diversity and complexity of ellipsis in two writers' works through language. The paper follows the theoretical functional grammar approach of Halliday and Hasan.
