Adjectives of quantity

Adjectives of quantity describe the amount or quantity of a noun. We use quantifiers to answer the questions “How much?” and “How many?”

Contingut exercicis

Some quantifiers are only used with countable nouns (tables, oranges, books), others are only used with uncountable nouns (milk, money, coffee), and still others are used with both countable and uncountable nouns.

1. Quantifiers that indicate quantity from 100 % to 0 %:

2. Cardinal numbers: one, two, three... Example: There are two tomatoes on the table.

3. Fractions: 1/2 (one half), 2/3 (two-thirds)... Example: Paul has eaten one half of the cake

4. Quantifiers that cannot be shown on a scale: another, enough, both, each, either, neither.

Examples: Do you have enough money to pay the rent? I will spend another night at the hotel.

 

The position of the quantifiers

We put quantifiers at the beginning of a noun phrase: quantifier + noun (several books), quantifier + adjective noun (some old clothes), quantifier + adverb + adjective + noun (five very old men).
