Linear diagrams have recently been shown to be

for set-based reasoning. However, unlike the

of Euler and Venn diagrams, there has been no

knowledge gap, we present and formalise Point

linear diagrams containing points, thus providing

language.We prove that PaL diagrams are exactly

equality, gaining, as a corollary, an equivalence

diagrams. The method of proof provides translations

first-order logic.
