# 59 Quantitative Determiners

## Introduction

Determiners are modifiers of nouns. They can provide information about which and how much/many people, things, animals, places… we are talking about.

Quantitative determiners or quantifiers are used to indicate the quantity of something {see Quantitative Determiners, A1 Level}.

## Form

The most commonly used quantifiers are: all (of), a lot of (lots of), a number of, enough (of), most (of), none (of)…
