Anti-real, universals

Only particulars (matter) exist. Universals are names or labels for groups of (concrete or conceptual) objects with something perceived to be in common.

This is therefore both an ontological and linguistic problem since much time is spent making philosophical propositions or everyday utterances about what object (concrete or conceptual) belongs to what universal.
