DocV, I am American and Emglish is my first language. Most of my grammar I learned in Catholic elementary school. In high school, instruction was more about literature, vocabulary building, different types of writing, and spelling. Grammar was an elective in 11th grade and I took it. Our book was Strunk and White's Elements of Style which focuses more on usage and composition.
It is a serious thing for me to add a part of speech and I'm not yet comfortable with the idea of determiners, but I will get there eventually- it does seem as if there is concensus in the grammar community!
What would be the category for good/better/best? Determiner or adjective?
