Reply to "collective nouns?"

Rachel,

Thank you for declaring me the winner. Er... so when do I get my cheque for the $1 miilion first-prize jackpot...?

At face value, these words like punnet, clutch, etc., seem to function so much like collective nouns...

So, Rachel, does it mean that if it can take on a plural verb, then it is by definition, a collective noun?

Thanks.
Gilbert
