"Not two"

My fiance once told me that he had heard that Chinese had a word for "not two." This, of course, made the rounds in his gaming group, and became a running joke of sorts, not that they ever found out the word itself.

I'm wondering if the story has any basis in fact. I would assume it would likely be a word in Classical Chinese, if it exists. My main question is if anyone can tell me if this is bunk, or can tell me the word (in both pinyin and hanzi, if you would).

Much thanks in advance :)
