 as·sem·blage /əˈsɛmblɪʤ, ||ˌæˌsɑmˈblɑʒ/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 As·sem·blage, n.
 1. The act of assembling, or the state of being assembled; association.
    In sweet assemblage every blooming grace.   --Fenton.
 2. A collection of individuals, or of individuals, or of particular things; as, a political assemblage; an assemblage of ideas.
 Syn: -- Company; group; collection; concourse; gathering; meeting; convention.
 Usage: Assemblage, Assembly. An assembly consists only of persons; an assemblage may be composed of things as well as persons, as, an assemblage of incoherent objects. Nor is every assemblage of persons an assembly; since the latter term denotes a body who have met, and are acting, in concert for some common end, such as to hear, to deliberate, to unite in music, dancing, etc. An assemblage of skaters on a lake, or of horse jockeys at a race course, is not an assembly, but might be turned into one by collecting into a body with a view to discuss and decide as to some object of common interest.
