We have mentioned the special category of determinant modulators. It seems that this category is interesting and deserves to be explored further. A determinant modulator is placed before a determinant and changes its meaning. As we have already seen, from the viewpoint of two-sided grammar, a determinant preceded by a determinant modulator (MODD) remains a determinant.

We can give some examples that apply to different categories of determinants:

- MODD applying to possessive determinants (mes, tes, ses, nos, vos, leurs; my, your, his/her, our, your, their;
**i me, i to, i so, i nostri, i vostri, i so**), demonstrative determinants (ces;*these*;**‘ssi/’sse**) and definite article determinants (les;*the*;**i/e**): certaines de, certains de, l’un de, l’une de, la majeure partie de, la plupart de, tous, toutes, une bonne partie de, une grande partie de;*some of, some of, one of, one of, most of, most of, all of, all of, a good part of, a large part of*;**une poche di, uni pochi di, unu di, una di, parte è più di, a maiò parte di, tutti, tutte, une bella parte di, parte assai di**. Here are some examples: “certains de mes chevaux étaient bruns” (*some of my horses were brown*;**uni pochi di i me cavalli eranu bruni**); la majeure partie des (= de les) habitants étaient riches (*most of the inhabitants were rich*;**a maiò parte di l’abitanti eranu ricchi**).

In addition, we have three other categories of MODDs that have already been mentioned:

- MODD applying to cardinal determinants (deux, trois, quatre, cinq, … ;
*two, three, four, five…*;**dui, trè, quattru, cinqui**,…): au moins, presque, quasiment, environ, plus de, moins de, approximativement, etc. (*at least, almost, nearly, about, more than, less than, approximately*, etc. ;**alminu, guasgi, guasgi, circa, più di, menu di, apprussimativamenti**, etc.) - MODD applying to indefinite article determinants: plus de, au moins;
*more than, at least*;**più di, alminu** - MODD applying to indefinite determinants (aucun, aucune, quelques;
*none, none, a few*;**nisciunu, nisciuna, calchì**): au moins, presque; at least, almost;**alminu, guasi**

Finally, it seems that this category of MODD has some consistency and could be of practical interest.
