In traditional graphic arts, a dot is an individual element of a halftone, the result of screening a continuous-tone image. In the electronic mode, a dot is one pixel of the bitmapped image created by digitalization for electronic manipulation. The pixel is rendered as a dot on film and in print.
The unit (size) printers use to describe the ink or toner placed for printing. Dot can correspond to a single pixel used to show an image or a group of pixels to produce a larger printer dot(s) to represent grays.
The raster or grid point used in printing technology, in digital imaging also the image point or pixel of the monitor. The essential factor is the spacing between the dots. These are usually between 0.2 and 0.3 millimetres. The finer the dot spacing of the monitor, the sharper or clearer the graphic display.
The smallest raster element of an image. Many dots together produce one pixel. Meaning, for example, that in the specification "8 bit depth", three "layers" of 256 dots each are on top of one another to produce one pixel.
The individual element of a halftone. Its size (density) can be related to the density of the original used to produce the halftone dot. The size of the dot is indicated by the percentage of the area it occupies from zero to on hundred percent. It may be several shapes including round, square or elliptical.
Strictly speaking a dot is the smallest spot an imagesetter or printer can output and is usually expressed in dots per inch (dpi). However the term dot is often used interchangeably with Pixels (ppi) or Halftone Cells (lpi or L/S). An imagesetter dot is of a specific and unvarying size. A 300dpi laser printer can only make dots that are 1/300 of an inch in diameter. To make a bigger spot it uses several dots. On the other hand a halftone dot varies in size in order to simulate continuous tone. (see: Halftone)

A string of dots next to a word or syllable indicate aakaaram, continuing the singing of the word
