punctum saliens - The Salient Point

Aristoteles (Hist. Animal 6,3) speaks of the blood spot in the white of an egg as a point that hops and jumps like a living being, in the Latin translation:

quod punctum salit iam et movetur ut animal

The punctum saliens is the salient point that is most important.

The period is one of the most important punctuation marks in written language. In most programming languages the period is also an essential syntactical delimiter. In COBOL or BLISS for example beginners often experienced the fatal effects of a missing or misplaced period.
