Determiners and Quantifiers

  Determiners and Quantifiers   Determiners and quantifiers are words we use before nouns to clarify the noun's context in a sentence. They tell us things like " which one " or " how many ." Determiners are like pointing words. They help specify a particular noun. Examples: the book (a specific book), that cat (a specific cat), my car (a specific car) Quantifiers tell us about the amount of a noun. Examples: some books (not all, but a few), many cats (a large number), a few cars (a small number) " The cat ate all the food. " The (before cat and food): This determiner tells us we're talking about a specific cat and specific food. All : This quantifier tells us the cat ate the entire amount of food.
