omens

Here is my best explanation:

'portents' is the definition.
('omen' can be a synonym of 'portent')

'the point in some strange' is the wordplay.
'the point' becomes 'n' (N is an example).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'strange' indicates anagramming the letters.
'some' is an anagram of 'omes'.
'n' going within 'omes' is 'OMENS'.
