Determiner

What Is a Determiner? (Video)

A determiner is a word that precedes a noun to specify quantity (e.g., two cats, many mice) or to clarify what the noun refers to (e.g., his house, those dogs, the mouse). Determiners cannot have a comparative form, and many determiners reference something else, making them like pronouns. This is how they differ from descriptive adjectives.
