Morals: morals refers to a more or less coded set of rules, action maxims, duties and prohibitions within a society or group. Most of these rules are unconsciously internalized among the members of the society or group. Their justification and the possible assessment of actions are reflected in ethics and meta ethics. See also values, norms, rights, ethics.

II 184ff
Ethics/Ayer: morality is a feeling, no knowledge -. E.g. "good" - it doesn’t matter what central ethical expression is used for A, the phrase "X is not A, if and only then if x is B", will never lead to a contradiction - but it would have to, if the first sentence should be analytical - e.g. the definition: "X is good" = "x is generally approved" must fail: there is no contradiction in saying that there are actions which are not good, although they are generally accepted.
