What is a Collective Noun?
Collective nouns are words that describe a group of things, people, or animals. In English, there are many different types of collective nouns. Some examples are herd, flock, school, and company.
Collective nouns can be interesting to learn because they are not always intuitive. For example, a group of fish is called a school, but a group of whales is called a pod.
