[This definition had been introduced by J. S. Mill. A word connotes those attributes which its predication of an interest asserts that that subject possesses. But connote is now usually loosely used in these types of an expression that any feature considered to be possessed by all the things denoted by a term is considered connoted by that term. Mill discountenances this use of the word.
