Learning English Grammar : Collective Nouns.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Today, I am going to write more on Nouns and for today's topic would be, Collective Nouns

Now, I will be explaining about the Collective Nouns.

What is Collective Nouns?

Collective nouns is the name of a number (or collection) of people or things taken together and spoken of as one whole. For example, "a troupe of dancers".

*it is different with Countable and Uncountable Nouns. Take notes.

Sometimes, we group certain nouns together and speak of them as a whole. We use special words for such nouns. And this called, Collective Nouns. In English language, there are tonnes of Collective Nouns impression, and its divided into three groups, animal, people and things.

People :

a company of actors
a troupe of dancers
a gang of labourers
a band of musicians
a team of players
a choir of singers
a class of pupils
a staff of servants


a nest of ants
a flock of sheep
a pack of wolves
a school of whales
a team of oxen
a herd of buffalos
a litter of kitten

Things :

a flight of aeroplane
a collection of pictures
a set of tools
a flight of steps
a bundle of sticks
a bunch of grapes

And many more.

Well, this is easy right, you just need to read more, this is because, sometimes, you apply technically, but you have to read in order for you to get the knowledge. okay?


Assalamualaikum WBT,

p/s: Love yourself because you are limited.
