plain point (plural plain points)

  1. (typography, obsolete) Synonym of full stop or period ⟨.⟩.
    • 1824, J. Johnson, Typographia:
      There be five manner of points and divisions most used among cunning men; the which if they be well used, make the sentence very light and easy to be understood, both to the reader and hearer: and they be these, virgil,—come,—parenthesis,—plain point,—interrogative.
