Zweck vs. Punkt? :/ People must ask this all the time, I realize...

"Punkt" could translate as dot/period)/point (on a map or spot) or in this case the point of an idea you are trying to get across.

Whereas Zweck would translate as purpose or the point of doing something (for what purpose)

So, in this example, "that is my point" shouldn't be a opinion, but an actual dot? It's not clear...

I think Sheldon says "that's my spot" (meaning place), not point.
