DET: determiner

Definition

Determiners are words that modify nouns or noun phrases and express the reference of the noun phrase in context.

Note that Chinese does not traditionally define determiners as a separate word class, but categorizes them as pronouns and/or adjectives. For this reason, in the UD framework some words in Cantonese may function as determiners and be tagged DET in one syntactic context (i.e., when modifying a noun), and as pronouns (tagged PRON) when behaving as a nominal or the head of a nominal phrase.
