gargoyle

In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque, usually made of granite,[1] with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building thereby preventing rainwater from running down masonry walls and eroding the mortar between.

uxorious

"Nowdays, as with 'to pass' and 'losing one's wife to cancer', I bridle at the misuse of the adjective 'uxorious'. If we don't look out, it will come to describe 'a man who has many wives', or even (that dubious phrase) 'a lover of women'. It doesn't mean this. It describes - and always will, whatever future dictionaries may permit - a man who loves his wife."

Julian Barnes, Levels of Life

Murder of crows - Jato vrana





A group of crows is called a “murder.” There are several different explanations for the origin of this term, mostly based on old folk tales and superstitions. For instance, there is a folktale that crows will gather and decide the capital fate of another crow.

Many view the appearance of crows as an omen of death because ravens and crows are scavengers and are generally associated with dead bodies, battlefields, and cemeteries, and they’re thought to circle in large numbers above sites where animals or people are expected to soon die.

But the term “murder of crows” mostly reflects a time when groupings of many animals had colorful and poetic names. Other fun examples of “group” names include: an ostentation of peacocks, a parliament of owls, a knot frogs, and a skulk of foxes.
