One of the strangest idiosyncrasy of the English language is the sheer amount of collective nouns that all mean "group" that are precisely to do with what exact thing there is a group of: a bunch of grapes, a pack of cards, a colony of penguins, a staff of employees, an annoyance of neighbours a flock of sheep, and so forth. Many of these collective nouns are striking, evocative even lyrical and there is great diversity of collective nouns associated with animals, I’d like to know what are your favourites; a murder of crows perhaps? Or a congress of baboons?
Mega1 you're way too funny and you've probably identified the best of all the collective nouns. I'm supposed to be nursing a cold not crying with laughter but you're humour (English spelling) has banished any notion of self-pity. Thank you!
