Collective Nouns

A collective noun is a singular noun referring to a group of persons, animals or things.

The large number of collective nouns in English is based on a tradition of terms of venery (words for groups of animals) which arose in the late middle ages.

Quirky & educational – each collective noun features an illustration of the animal by Jan Morley.

“I love designing this range – the collectives are so interesting with all sorts of different nouns to choose from for each animal. The collective nouns can also change depending on what activity the animal is doing. For example when seals are sitting on a rock it is a plump of seals but if they are in the sea then it is a bob of seals.” Jan Morley.

Our Collective Nouns range sells really well – especially the tea towel – so we have added more items to make a bigger presentation for your shop.
