Spanish Determiner


Definition:Spanish Determiners are words that make specific the denotation of a noun phrase. In Spanish they agree in gender with the noun. Spanish language uses determiners in a similar way to English language. The main difference is that they agree in gender and number with the noun.

The function of determiner may be applied in Portuguese Grammar, because it’s very similar to Spanish Grammar rules.
