Dictionary of Collectives

A collective noun is a descriptor for a group of entities of one kind, such as a herd of cows or a flock of birds. More interesting are a gaggle of geese or a murder of crows. This searchable dictionary contains most of the special collectives used in English. Use the Contact Page to advise of corrections, or forms we have missed.
