Since childhood I have loved the concept of collective nouns. In elementary school I was excited whenever my teachers would reveal a new way for me to describe a group of animals, or for that matter people & places. We take for granted a box of crayons or a majority of people, since the terms are heard so often. What interests most people are the collective nouns for animals such as, a murder of crows, a sleuth of bears, a charm of hummingbirds, a shrewdness of apes and a pounce of cats. I am now proposing a new series of collective nouns for the paranormal community. Some of them are silly but I chalk that up to writing the list at 4am.
A Collection of Collective terms
A descent of Sea Monsters
A toe of Bigfoot or A forest of Sasquatch
A ware of Flying Saucers or A beam of UFOs
A look of Apparitions
A drink of Spirits
A dusting of Orbs
A concentration of Psychics
A heard of EVPs
A shock of EMFs
A crash of Poltergeists
A drama of Paranormal Investigators
and of course…
A fraid of Ghosts
Have anymore? Let me hear them. It can be fun…if you’re a word nerd.
