Why an adjective?[edit]

Why is this word an adjective, while my is a determiner? They seem exactly equivalent in the way they modify a noun to show possession. 24.29.228.33 23:44, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

A determiner is a type of adjective, so while determiners may also be called adjectives, not all adjectives are determiners. our can just as well be labeled a determiner. —Stephen 15:21, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
I agree; change it to determiner. Q: Why are there samples for ENU homophones, but no text designating such, as there is for ENG & ENA? Also, I want (selfishly, obviously) a citation for the 'are' homophone. Millions of 3rd grade graduates saying it wrong does not give it the status of become accepted language; I pray.
