When teaching collective nouns to a class today, I mentioned some of the strange ones – an ostentation of peacocks, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a knot of frogs and a skulk of foxes.
That made me wonder what the collective noun for a group of binders would be. What do you think the collective noun for Belmonts would be? They are made of gorgeous leather with very western stitching and look like workhorses. A brace of Belmonts?
What do you use your Pocket size Filofaxes for, Janet? I’ve got a few, including an Ebony Deco I absolutely adore, but I find myself perpetually restless when in a Pocket and I quickly more to either Personal or A5.
I use them when I am on holiday or traveling as they are smaller and can hold the basics. I like the back pocket so many of them have.
Hmmm, I remember learning at school that belmont means something like beautiful mound or hill or something. There is a Belmont Road near to the school I attended, which is a road off of a steep hill. So maybe a ‘beauty of belmonts’? I think I will look up the origins!
A beauty of Belmonts sounds perfect!
