: : Is there a special term for words such as a PIECE of cloth, a BUNCH of flowers, a PAIR of chopsticks? I don't think it is "quantifier" but I am dying to find out what they are called. Please help. Thanks.
: Collective noun?
I think collective noun means words such as machinery for machine, poetry for poem, etc.
