Definition of predeterminer in English:
A word or phrase that occurs before a determiner, typically quantifying the noun phrase, for example both or a lot of.
- For what it's worth, the contrast is even starker for me when the predeterminer is both rather than all.
- Nevertheless, in the singular, they share some characteristics with plurals: for instance, they occur with predeterminer ‘all’ (‘all the committee’, like ‘all the children’;.
