Don't know what the name for this is (apart from, obviously, ambiguity). Got intrigued by this sentence in React docs:

Note: passing undefined as a Provider value does not cause consuming components to use defaultValue.

I am almost certain that what was meant in this sentence is "causes consuming components not to use defaultValue" rather than "does not cause ... to use". An affirmation of a causal relationship rather than an observation about the absence of such a relationship. Perhaps, I thought, this was an interference from the non-English native language of the writer? But no, as far as I can tell, the author of the commit has English as his native language.
