  12. Determiners
    The determiner is a word class which introduces and provides information to a noun. The 4 types of determiners are quantifiers, demonstratives, possessives and articles.

    Demonstratives
    The 4 types of demonstratives are this, that, these and those.

    Example:

    This

    This ride is very hair-raising.
    This is very hair-raising.

    In the first sentence, this is a determiner as it is in front of a noun which is ride whereas in the second sentence this is a pronoun because it is not before a noun.

    Quantifiers
    Quantifiers indicates quantity such as many.

    Example:

    Several

    On the way across the open water, they saw several dolphins.
    There are several of these toys in this .shop

    In the first sentence, several is a determiner as it is in front of a noun which is ride whereas in the second sentence several is a pronoun because it is not before a noun.

    Articles
    Articles show if a noun is definite or indefinite. A definite article refers to a specific noun. An indefinite article refers to any noun.

    Example:

    The

    Can you give me the red pen?
    Can you give me a red pen?

    In the first question the article is definite as it is talking about a specific pen but in the second question, it is talking about any red pen.

    Possessives
    Possessives show something has been possessed by someone or something.

    Example:

    Jack

    Jack’s toy got broken.
    There were many people named Jack.

    In the first sentence, Jack’s is a determiner as it is before a noun but in the second sentence, jack is not a determiner as it is not before a noun.

  13. Thank you everyone for contributing to this video; it has helped me understand a lot more about determiners.
    Here is some information about determiners:

    There are four main types of determiners: articles, demonstratives, possessive determiners and quantifiers.
    The articles,which are “a,an and the”, are used to specify a noun.
    Demonstratives(who,whose,whom,which and what)point to the noun they have replaced.
    Possessive pronouns-his,hers,ours,etc-take the place of a noun that belongs to someone or something.
    Quantifiers(one,two,several,etc)indicate the amount or number of something.
    NOTE:all these types of determiners count as pronouns or adverbs if not followed by a noun.

    Thanks again everyone!
