    Smile quantifiers or numerals

    a herd of horses/goats/cows
    a pack of dogs/wolves
    a school of fish
    a great amount of money
    a lot of water


    What do you call the words underlined? Is it a quantifier or a numeral? Thanks.

    The first three are collective nouns, and the last two nouns

    Thanks, moggy, for your helpful reply.
    For the sake of curiosity, aren't the last two alias quantifiers?

    Sorry Angli, I wouldn't know. This is a term I'm not familiar with
