Below you can find more than one synonym for the word "group".

  • Unction

  • Bevy

  • Tantivy

When a group is on the larger side, it may be called a BEVY. Bevy's earliest use in English was as a collective noun for quail ( behold, the bevy of quail!) similar to a covey of partridges. When in reference to people, bevy has historically described groups of women. While you will still encounter these specific uses, the word bevy has resisted being pigeonholed. The term is now widely used in a general sense to emphasize abundance in number, and can be found in reference to just about any type of assemblage or collection.

Example: The televised fundraiser boasted a bevy of stars.
