ADJECTIVES describe nouns. adjectives can be colours, numbers, size, texture, quantities - they tell you what something is like.

DETERMINERS are like special adjectives that pin down precisely which noun is being talked about.  We do not say: Dog barked at man.  Rather we specify: That dog barked at the man.

Determiners include a, an, the (also known as articles) this, that, those, these, my, his, ours, many, few, any, every, two, three (any number) which, what, whose etc.


ACTIVITY - add a mixture of determiners to the adjectives and nouns above.
