Collective nouns are words that represent groups. They can be groups of people, places, or things. The most common example I can think of is the word "herd". This can be a name given to cattle as well as Zombies, if you are a sci-fi fan. We can see the evolution of the collection name for cash through the history of rap music. They were first referred to as "piles" (of cash), then "stacks", and today the most common use of collective noun is "racks". These parts of speech can be difficult for non-native English speakers. That is because there are so many variations and new words are emerging from pop culture all the time, as we just illustrated. This cadre of worksheets will help students become more comfortable will the use of collective nouns.
