Class names/Mill: sometimes one tries to explain general terms as "class names".
MillVs: better reverse:
Definiton Class/Mill: an undefined set of particulars, which is denoted by a generic name (general term).
Difference to "collectives" (> distribution): collectives only belong to wholenesses
E.g. "76th regiment". This is not a general term but a singular term for a whole.
E.g "a regiment": is at the same time a singular term and a general term.
