    Hello here is 'The french', is it a question ?

    What do you want to know exactly?

    Perhaps you would like to like knowing the diference between proper nouns and common nouns, I'm not sure.

    Bye see you later.

    Unless we're missing something, you have just given a list of common nouns!

    Re: common & collective nouns

    emsr2d2 is right. They don't get too much more common than that. I wonder if we are interpreting your question correctly...

    Plus, several of these words have multiple meanings and usages. We need some clarification before we can help you.

    I agree it's a less than ideally expressed question.
    You're probably after:
    A chest of drawers
    A litter of kittens
    A company of fools
    A clump of dirt
    ...

    Re: common & collective nouns

    Does anybody know the correct word for the second term in these expressions (the "kind of things being grouped")?
