What is Point Size?

I am doing a college project on typography, and in Butterick’s Practical Typography guide is said that point size is essential to determine how the body text looks.

As all the terms change when translated, I usually get lost, I always have to refer to the Portuguese translation so I can understand certain subjects.

I couldn’t find an explanation for point size in Portuguese. I know that when styling in CSS I can refer to the point or pica.

Here is the best explanation that I found:

Point size is the measure of default or minimum inter-baseline distance; inter line distance in absence of leading, AKA “set solid”. If you don’t know if the text was set solid or leaded, you can’t tell the point size with a measuring glass unless you know if the type design includes built-in space between adjacent, set-solid lines.

Came across this sweatshirt on FOC and absolutely had to share it!
I hate hearing “You’re so pretty for a big girl.” Is that even a compliment? So, what you’re saying is that my beauty is conditional?Anyway, I love that this sweatshirt is calling people out on that “compliment.” Any chance the sweatshirts have a big FU on the back? LOL
Also, how good do the models look? #flawless They’re so pretty. period
