comment “Most of our generation only knows/know him by repute.”
your logic does seem to make sense. especially considering that 'most of my generation' is implicitly 'most people of my generation' - which makes your example extremely apt. I shall wait for some more time for other answers before marking you correct (hope that isn't rude by SE policy!!). EDIT: the thread you mentioned completely answered my question satisfyingly.

@EdwinAshworth could you refer me to the webpage or sigh the book that you refer to? what IS the distinction between collective and countable that both of you seem to keep talking of?

@Shubham the forum post was a good find - but it doesn't resolve anything (I hope I did not miss something important there!). As for the whole issue of countability of the subjects to use the expression 'most of' - I do not see a problem with people or books being uncountable. Do you?
