FICTITIOUS
COLLECTIVE NOUNS

“MAGICIANS TO
ORNITHOLOGISTS”

This page is just a bit of
fun!

The page of
collective
nouns has
created a lot of interest and some very unusual suggestions, so I thought I
would start a page of the more “suspect” or innovative ones in order not to
confuse the younger visitors.

Please note
– many of these suggestions are provided by our visitors and are not
necessarily ‘endorsed’ by Hints and Things.


PLEASE
REMEMBER THESE ARE THE UNOFFICIAL NOMENCLATURE

Collective
nouns
more likely be authentic.

 

Due to the popularity of this page it
has become very large and, therefore, somewhat cumbersome so I have taken
the decision to spread it over several different pages.

MOOSE As can be seen on our page of
‘authentic’ collective nouns, the
‘official’ collective noun for moose is a ‘HERD
but, as these animals rarely congregate in large groups this
seems to be somewhat of a misnomer.  I have received the
following comments from Marlene Lewis
in Alaska……

“I’d like to point out, however, that moose are not herd
animals. Here where we live in Alaska, we practically stumble
over the big, stupid galoots all year long. They are loners,
although you may see a large number occasionally browsing in the
same area. Therefore, my humble suggestion for an alternative to
HERD of moose is…. “
