DET: determiner


Determiners are words that modify nouns or noun phrases and express the reference of the noun phrase in context. In Irish there are pre-determiners (preceding the noun) and post-determiners (following the noun).

Articles are pre-determiners. In Irish, there is no indefinite article, only a definite one. The definite article has two forms – singlular an and plural na.

Post-determiners occur with an article, and follow the noun. Some of these are demonstratives (seo “this; siúd “that”; sin “that”; úd “that”).
