Determiners play an important role in conveying the meaning of an utterance, but they have often been disregarded, perhaps because it seemed more i~portant to devise methods to grasp the global meaning of a sentence, even if not in a precise way. Another problem with determiners is their inherent a~bigulty. In this paper we propose a logical formaliem, which, among other things, is suitable fc~ representing determiners without forcing a particular interpretation when their meaning is still not clear.
