DET: determiner

Definition

Determiners are words that modify nouns or noun phrases and express the reference of the noun phrase in context. That is, a determiner may indicate whether the noun is referring to a definite or indefinite element of a class, to a closer or more distant element, to an element belonging to a specified person or thing, to a particular number or quantity, etc.

Japanese language do not have articles, and the traditional grammar of Japanese does not have determiners as a word class. There is a small group of adnominal words which are tagged adnominal / 連体詞 (admoninal adjective), some words in the class are correspond to possesive pronoun (e.g. あの  “that”, どの  “which”) and classified as determiner DET, while others are tagged ADJ (e.g. 同じ  “same”, 大きな  “big”).
