## Axiom of Unions: Also known as

The **Axiom of Unions** is in fact most frequently found with the name **Axiom of Union**.

However, in some treatments of axiomatic set theory and class theory, for example Morse-Kelley set theory this name is used to mean something different.

Hence $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ specifically uses the plural form **Axiom of Unions** for this, and reserves the singular form **Axiom of Union** for that.

Other terms that can be found to refer to the **Axiom of Unions**:

- the
**Axiom of the Sum Set** - the
**Axiom of Amalgamation** - the
**Union Axiom**.
