    • non Not.
    • non Not; a prefix freely used in English to give a negative sense to words. It is applicable to any word. It differs from un- in that it denotes mere negation or absence of the thing or quality, while un- often denotes the opposite of the thing or quality. Examples are non- residence, non- performance, non- existence, non- payment, non- concurrence, non -admission, non -contagious, non -emphatic, non- fossiliferous. The compounds with this prefix are often arbitrary and as a rule self-explaining. Only the most important of them are given below.
