Most importantly, you have to pay attention to the similar group nouns and not misplace them or overgeneralize them. For instance, we have the words pride of lions and parade of elephants. Both words are pronounced similarly and written in an almost close manner in regard to the letters causing those particular sounds, phonetically speaking, which causes people to mishear and misuse one of the words on the account of the other which somehow disappears from use.

It is not advised for students to memorize this by heart, rather a continuous check from time to time according to how needed in their study.
