Does anybody know when and by whom the "punctum of Laon" got the name "uncinus"?
This terminology doesn't appear yet in Cardine's Semiologie grégorienne.
It isn't even clear if Cardine hinself or one of his collobarotors gsave the name.
When appeared this terminology "uncinus" the first time in semiological publications?

Don't know, but also punctum is inappropriate, because the dot (punctum/punctus) does already exist in that notation with a different rhythmical meaning (half value).

Uncinus is a latiun adjective which means

crooked / curved / in shape of a hook
