Hi, i was wondering, in language, if there is a word for a word assiociated to a noun in the following way:
a bolt of cloth
a pane of glass
a sheet of paper
I would be tempted to call this the collective noun.
But seeing as in essence, I am not describing a group or collection of things, I don't believe that calling this the collective noun would be entirely correct.
Maybe there isnt even a word to describe such nouns. In which case this is gravely futile!
