non-descriptive ‎(comparative more non-descriptive, superlative most non-descriptive)

  1. Not descriptive.
    • 1995, John Lyons, Linguistic Semantics[1]:
      When it comes to expressive (or socio-expressive) meaning – and this is the only kind of non-descriptive meaning that we will take into account here – there is no readily available and reasonably objective criterion which enables us to decide between identity and difference.
