A Reminder about Determiners

Determiners help to specify or identify the noun or noun phrase they modify. They are a type of modifier that precedes a noun and provides crucial information about the noun's number, gender, specificity, and possession. Determiners include articles (such as "a," "an," and "the"), demonstratives (such as "this" and "that"), possessives (such as "my," "your," and "their"), and quantifiers (such as "some," "any," and "many").

Learn with Hangman!

Hangman is a classic word game. In this version, the hidden word is always a determiner from this list. (Choose your first letter to start.)
  • Guess the hidden preposition by choosing one letter at a time.
  • If you guess a letter in the hidden preposition, then all is good.
  • If you guess a letter that is not in the hidden preposition, then the hangman starts to build the gallows.
  • If the gallows are completed, you lose.
  • Good luck!
