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.... "

A COINCIDENCE of moose.
