Horde or Hoard? I looked up the definition of horde and hoard, but the definitions didn’t help me to decide which one to use. Horde- a big group or number, a multitude (all the examples were about people) and Hoard- a supply or accumulation that is hidden or kept (the example was for silver)…. I actually looked it up because I thought one was a noun and one was a verb but actually they both can be both. The sentence is : "Because of the Great Depression, some elderly individuals keep a horde/horde of things to be used again. From yogurt cups to the inside plastic bags in a box of cereal to the twisties from the tops of bags of bread, what you see as no value is a reusable commodity to these survivors." So is horde only for people, but then I don’t understand the name of the tv show Hoarders, because that is about people who have accumulated a lot of stuff!
