English[edit]

Noun[edit]

raised point (plural raised points)

  1. (grammar) · (the Greek punctuation mark used in place of a semicolon in English).

Usage notes[edit]

  • · is correctly represented by the Unicode character U+0387, which is positioned similarly to the top point of a colon(:) or semicolon (;)
  • For technical reasons (U+0387) reproduces in Wiktionary as the Latin middle dot (U+00B7).
    U+0387 = · (higher)
    U+00B7 = · (lower)
