In English, determiner is a class of words that occur with nouns, and serve to specify the entity or entities the noun refers to. Determiners include articles like "a" and "the", cardinal numbers like "two", possessives like "my", demonstratives like "this", quantifiers like "many" and "no", distributive determiners like "each", and interrogative determiners like "which".

Some theories of grammar consider determiners to be adjectives or pronouns. Ordinal numerals are generally considered to be adjectives.
