Language Refresher 11: Collective Nouns (Animals)

Meeting by team.labarnaWhat  do we call a group of bees? 벌들을 어떻게 불러야 할까요?

Do you know that there are specific collective nouns for each type of animal? This is the reason why we say ” army of ants”, but never “army of jellyfish”.각각 다른 종류의 동물 중 특정한 집단 명사가 있다는 것을 아십니까? 이것이 우리가 “army of ants” 라고는 부르지만, “army of jellyfish” 라고는 부르지 않는 이유 입니다.
