Determiners
Words that modify nouns.
Determiners, like other adjectives, agree in gender and number with the noun they modify (or, in this case, determine).
While articles are actually a subclass of determiners, and determiners are in turn a subclass of adjectives, they are generally treated separately.
Possessive Determiners
(Also called possessive adjectives or possessive pronouns)are used to indicate the possessor of the noun they determine. They mark the person and the number of the possessor, and are inflected to agree with their noun in gender and number. Like their English counterparts, they do not necessarily indicate true possession, or even ownership
