   You can express nothing is several ways¹. See below:


   Z E R O         N I H I L        Z I L C H

+Z E R O       +N I H I L      +Z I L C H

+Z E R O       _______              +N I L

_______      =Z I L C H             +N I L

=N O N E                                ________

                                                      = N A U G H T
