The period, question mark, and exclamation point are the three punctuation marks that are known as terminal punctuation. In Old English, periods were called 'points', and the word 'period' was first used to describe a punctuation mark in the 16th century. The word ‘punctuation’ is derived from the Latin word 'punctual', which means ‘to make small cuts’.
