التركية النطق seyliınt
علم أصول الكلمات [ 'sA-ly&nt, -lE-&nt ] (adjective.) 1646. The heraldic sense "leaping" and the sense "projecting outward" are from Latin saliens, from saliō (“leap, spring”). The senses "prominent" and "pertinent" are relatively recently from the phrase "salient point", which is from the Latin punctum saliens, a translation of Aristotle's term for the embryonal heart visible in (opened) eggs, which he thought seemed to move already. Compare the German calque der springende Punkt.
