Words beginning with vowels and collective nouns

This is probably true of other ‘vowel words’, but the purposes here:

Words beginning with the letter ‘a’ that contain more vowels than consonants tend to be interesting words.

Fascinating words from my OED Concise

apogee ; abelian ; abiogenesis ; ablative ; adiabatic ; aisle ; aerobe ; atiology ; avacado ; axiom ; atrabilious ; ab initio

Any collective noun is of interest to this lady

Shrewdness of apes

Blush of boys

Observance of hermits

Exaltation of larks

Pity of prisoners

Unkindness of ravens

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
