English terms that reference nouns, expressing their contexts directly.

In English, determiner is a class of words, the members of which mainly function as dependents in noun phrase structure to mark the phrase as definite or indefinite. Words in the determiner class also commonly have other functions. Its core members include articles and other items that fill the same slot as articles but are mutually exclusive with them, such as cardinal numbers.

Note that while this determining function in a noun phrase may be filled by other words, such as pronouns, that does not make those words themselves members of the class of determiners. Thus, ordinals, for example, are adjectives and fractions are nouns.
