    Determiners


    Determiners

    A- Articles

    * A : indefinite used before a singular and noun beginning with a consonant.

    A boy, a country, a man.

    * An : indefinite and used before singular beginning with a vowel.

    An elephant, an artist, an opinion.

    * The : definite used before singular and plural nouns.

    The man, the capital, the modals.

    Careful!

    1-We use the article before a common noun in the singular

    Examples:

    A boy(singular)----- (A) boys (plural).

    The boy (singular)----- The boys (plural).

    2-We don't use the article, before a proper noun

    Examples:

    A city : Atlanta.

    A country : England

    A person : Betty.

    But we say :

    The United States, The Himalaya.

    3- We don't use the article before abstract nouns or nouns expressing a generality.

    Example:

    Pollution/Ecology/Liberty/Peace/Brotherhood

    B-Quantifiers

    * Countable nouns:

    1- Small quantity: some, a little.

    2- Large quantity: a lot of, a great deal of, much.

    3- Small number: some, a few.

    4- Big number: many, a lot of.

    * Uncountable nouns:

    1- Liquids: water,oil...

    2- Mass nouns

    3- Feelings: courage, passion, love, hate.
