Nonimplicative negation (Skt. prasajyapratiṣedha or niṣedha; Tib. མེད་དགག་; Wyl. med dgag) is defined as "realizing through mere preclusion by eliminating the object of negation using the conceptual mind" (རྟོག་བློས་དགག་བྱ་སྒྲུབ་པ་རྣམ་པར་བཅད་ནས་རྣམ་བཅད་ཙམ་དུ་རྟོགས་པར་བྱ་བ་, rtog blos dgag bya sgrub pa rnam par bcad nas rnam bcad tsam du rtogs par bya ba).

It is a negation of existence, as in the statement "there is no cat", and is contrasted with an implicative negation, as in the statement "that is not a cat" which implies the presence of something other than a cat.
