particulares, los particulares... ---- the other(s), strangers?

clases particulares -- private classes

when used to refer to "the other or strangers", it stroke me as particularly interesting the one day when court-interpreting and an attorney, who thought he knew Spanish, corrected my interpretation of the English word "others, strangers" because I used the false cognate "particulares". And recently I have wondered, apart from the use of "particulares" to denote something a "private" encounter, how many other uses I´m missing here.

In what other ways do you use "particular(es)" ?
