Some Important Points to Keep in Mind

Determiners are used in front of nouns to indicate whether you are referring to something specific or of a particular type.

Determiners are different to pronouns in that a determiner is always followed by a noun.
Therefore personal pronouns (I, you, he, etc.) and possessive pronouns (mine, yours, his, etc.) cannot be determiners.



The teacher, a college, a bit of honey, that person, those people, whatever purpose, either way, your choice
