A Flock, Herd or Pride?

27 April 2007
There are some odd collective nouns in English. A lounge of lizards. A Parliament of owls. Even a murder of crows. They can be hurtful at the same time. I'm sure many buyers would be sympathetic to the wag on the internet who suggested the collective term for a group of consultants should be a billing.But it got us thinking - what is the best way to refer to a group of purchasers? An efficiency of buyers perhaps? Or how about a source of purchasers? Let us know your suggestions.
