For the VFX company, please see Double Negative.

A double negative was a grammatical concept in which a statement canceled itself out.

In 2268, when Bela Okmyx stated, "Nobody helps nobody but himself", Spock informed him that he was using a double negative. Okmyx was unfamiliar with the term. (TOS: "A Piece of the Action")
