This should keep you busy: http://rinkworks.com/words/collective.shtml
I lead a couple of conversation groups for scientists at local government research institutes in Belgium and have been asked to give examples of collective nouns eg flock of sheep, herd of cows, murder of crows........
Is there somewhere on this site or on the internet where I can find a good long list?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks very much. That's certainly comprehensive. Loads of fun.
