determiner or adjective
In the phrase, "Thousands of refugees fled the senseless killings." Is "thousands" considered as a determiner or an adjective?
Re: determiner or adjective
Thousands here is a determiner. In fact, it is a particular type of determiner called a quantifier (which determines quantity).
