Below is a list of commonly used collective nouns for objects, fruits, plants and other miscellaneous things.
Some of these collective nouns are very old, dating back to medieval times, while others are fairly new. Not many people use a ‘moan’ of lamantations anymore, but a ‘cluster’ of computers has never been more relevant.
If you know of any other collective nouns that should be added to this list, use the comments box and the bottom of this page.

I’ve searched for a collective noun for a group of (bi)cyclists, but found none. While on a ride today, the subject of collective nouns came up, and my friend and I were noodling the idea of creating one for cyclists. While peloton/field/pack/bunch are terms used in road-racing to identify, or refer to, the functionally-necessary close packing of such cyclists during a race, there doesn’t appear to be a collective noun for cyclists of the more ordinary kind (e.g. commuters, people who have chosen the bicycle as their principle means of transport, etc.). I suggest, therefore, “an index of (bi)cyclists)”.
A commute of cyclists
1) Groups of plants
2) lot of wealth
3) lot of grains
4) Group of people watching films or match
An audience of people who are watching a movie or match
