Reply to "collective nouns?"

Here's the definition of "collective noun" from WordNet:

  • WordNet: collective noun

    The noun has one meaning:

    Meaning #1: a noun that is singular in form but refers to a group of people or things.

    So, we see that a collective noun can refer to things; however, it is hard to come up with examples of inanimate things that can hold collective nouns.

    I think this should be our first game: Name a collective noun that is composed of inanimate things.
