Determiners and quantifiers

Determiners and quantifiers are words we use in front of nouns. We use determiners to identify things (this book, my sister) and we use quantifiers to say how much or how many (a few people, a lot of problems).

Read clear grammar explanations and example sentences to help you understand how determiners and quantifiers are used. Then, put your grammar knowledge into practice by doing the exercises.

Hello skylark!
That's our mistake - don't worry about it! I have corrected it now.

Hi teachers I am in a quandary.

I have learnt here that DETERMINERS are wods that come at the beginning of a NOUN PHRASE but I am afraid that in one of the example sentences above is not a reflection of that, see below:

- A woman was lifted to safty by a helicopter.

I could observe, WOMAN alone cannot be a phrase.
If I am wrong, please correct.

Thanks. :-)

Hello Ebenezer!
Why do you think Woman is not a noun phrase? It could be! Take a look at our page on Noun Phrases for more information - the sentence is correct.
