negative pregnant

An evasive reply to an allegation in a court pleading, which - while being a literal response - in fact evades the true matter at issue. For example, if A denies that he received 1000 from B, this is a negative pregnant if he in fact received a lesser amount and the matter at issue was that he received money from B. Compare *affirmative pregnant.
