As in, if there is space for 100 grubles in my zeblar, is there a single word which means the zeblar contains between 0 and 99 grubles?

I'm looking for it to fit the sentence: "No [not full] slots have been found."

Using the hyphenated "No non-full..." sounds like a marginally confusing double negative

  • Unfilled, perhaps? My zeblar is unfilled. – Mick Dec 7 '17 at 13:14
  • @mick Unfilled is the best, I think. If you make it into an answer i'll accept it – David Dec 7 '17 at 13:29

    Your example sentence seems to work with free: No free slots have been found. Alternatively, available seems to work, in the sense that non-available would mean that the slot is completely full. – oerkelens Dec 7 '17 at 13:30

Unfilled would work:

  • My zeblar is unfilled.
  • No unfilled slots have been found.

unfilled

not filled

  • an unfilled bottle
  • unfilled spaces
  • a vacancy left unfilled
  • an unfilled order

Try “incomplete”, “unfinished”, or “partial”... or synonyms for these.

  • None of these would work in provided context because “my zeblar is incomplete” characterises zeblar itself rather than space available in it. Same with other words. – Alexander Revo Dec 7 '17 at 14:38
