List of collective nouns

While searching the Internet to compose a list of collective nouns, I found that this work has been done already meticulously, so I better list the links only.

  1. Wikipedia's List of animal names has not only collective nouns but also special neouns for male, female and young animals.
  2. Wikipedia's List of collective nouns for birds has many references.
  3. Wikipedia's List of collective nouns is also well equipped with references.
  4. In this context, also this Wikipedia link might be useful, which explains the difference between fish shoal and school.
