# Quantitative Determiners

Determiners

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}.

We use quantitative determiners to describe the quantity of something.

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

1. All my friends like drawing.
All of my friends like drawing.
2. A lot can happen in a long trip.
A lots of things can happen in a long trip.
3. A number of pilots were waiting.
4. There isn’t enough red wine for everyone.
There are enough of us to get the group price.
5. This plant has the most strawberries.

6. I have three leather jackets, he has none.

We use quantitative determiners to indicate the quantity of something:

1. All (of) (everyone or everything, the entire amount or number);
2. A lot (of) (a large number in quantity, scale or degree);
3. A number of (more than two but fewer than many);
4. Enough (of) (quantity, quality, or scope that meets requirements, demands, or expectations);
5. Most (of) (greatest in quantity, scale, or degree, majority);
6. None (of) (not any, not one or no person).

Quantitative determiners are used to indicate the quantity of something.

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

For example:
— “None of my friends take a ship.
— “A number of my friends booked a flight to Valencia.
