(fi) lauma
large group of land animals; large uncontrolled group of people

(similar to herd, pack, mob... but the animals can be of any species. From Wiktionary:

This word is used of groups of most land animals. Exceptions include herded reindeer (tokka), domesticated lamb and goat (katras). Group of flying or water animals is usually called parvi (3D-form). Seals are a bordercase. Usually a group of seals is lauma (2D-form) but when in water, especially a small group of seals may be called parvi.)

Yay! I came across this word in Finnish earlier today when I posted vâʹlvv. I had to double-check the meaning, and in the process I came across the Finnish translation "susilauma".

Okay! Next word....
(fi) parveke

You laugh, but it is "a little flock of logs" according to Wiktionary:

From Proto-Finnic *parvi . . . perhaps originally in the sense "group of logs joined together".


Next word, which is actually the middle step between parvi [flock of animals] and parveke [balcony]:

(fi) parvi
group of logs joined together loft, gallery (theatre); the kind of a half-floor you can have in a house:
