Definitions for "Dingbat"
A decorative element or graphic device for listing items or for decoration on a page.
Special character which is not a letter, such as the pointing hand. Authors of fiction should not feel entitled to call upon these characters as a matter of course.
Term for a typographical character shape that is not part of the alphabet. Most dingbats are pictograms, and are usually grouped into a single font set by a theme — tiny pictures of telephones, envelopes, hands, cars and the like used in the tourist industry. Others are more abstract symbols — check marks, crosses, cartographic symbols, the emblems of the suits of playing cards, and so on.
A dingbat (also called a stucco box or a shoebox), is a type of architecturally undistinguished apartment building that flourished in the Sun Belt region of the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. Dingbats are boxy, two- or three-story apartment houses with overhangs sheltering street-front parking. The elevation view of a dingbat is "half parking structure, half dumb box."
