nonolingual (adj.) -- referring to that group of people who commonly express themselves only through repeated, monosyllabic words of negativity, (such as "no" or the colloqual "sike" [sic] or "not"), but offering no further explanation. In the past, alt.config cabal professor emeritus Tim Pierce has been perhaps the greatest living example of this phenomenon. See also: metoolingual, hearhearlingual (often misspelled as "hereherelingual"), newbie.
