This one gets one of those Single Google Hits (what are they called again?)

Here is the context:

"Tanmateix, un cop més amb la intenció de fugir de solucions de certa singularitat, es planteja la utilització d’una alternativa més “tranquil•la”, consistent en disposar dues famílies d’elements inclinats de ***tornapuntat*** que, naixent allà on el forjat de la planta tipus més baixa s’interseca amb el propi nucli una d’elles, i a la base del primer pilar volat la segona, es van desplaçant cap a fora fins acabar per anar a recollir el forjat més alt a la banda oposada de la mateixa crugia"

As you can see, this is dense stuff.
