    Post Is "such" a determinative adjective?

    Dear Teachers,

    I read at several places that only four words qualify as Determinative Adjectives - "this". "that", "these" and "those". On some other places, I saw example sentences using "such" as Determinative Adjective as well. Can we call "such" as a Determinative Adjective?

    Yes, some people classify "such" as a determinative adjective. But it really doesn't matter what we call them as long as we use them correctly. Below is a link to by someone who sees determinative adjectives everywhere. I am not certifying his list, I am providing it as an example of the extreme view.
