I have a simple (and incomplete) definition. This post is less grandiose than my usual linguistic fare, but perhaps more helpful.

*null*

/adj./

  1. Attributes to something the absence of value. Ex: "The *null* set is the empty set, often represented by {}."

/n. colloq./

  1. An noted appearance of the absence of value. Ex: "This table contains *nulls*."

Notes on common usage:
