Can anyone tell me what is the difference between an article and a determiner? Some solid examples to help me to distinguish the two will be appreciated.
An article is one kind of determiner; there are only three articles-- a, an, the.
Other determiners are demonstratives (of which there are only four: this, that, these, those) and quantifiers, which give definite or indefinite numbers or quantities. There are many quantifiers-- all, some, many, few, seventeen, half etc.

Thank you. The dictionary of mine says that a determiner is a word such as "the" or "my" that is used before a noun to indicate which particular thing or person you are referring to. I can deduce from that the determiner does not include "a" or "an." Right or Wrong?
You forgot possessive determiners. My, your, his, her, its, our and their for instance.
