[Latin, point]

  2. A dot after a note that adds one half the original duration to the note. (This particular term specifically refers to those dots found in medieval mensural notation, although the dot serves the same function in modern notation).

    See more about the evolution of noteshapes in the Appendix.

  3. Each individual section of the estampie, a medieval dance.
