Is there any accepted order for different determiners? I read in an article that “determiners” come before adjectives, but what about different kinds of determiner? For example:

The memory of Lilian’s grandmother will always remain in her mind for all her kindness and dedication to her.

all”: Quantitative determiner

her”: possessive determiner

So which one is correct? “ her all kindness” or “all her kindness”? The second one sounds more natural to me, but I want to know if there is any rule.


Only all her kindness is grammatical: you can think of it as an abbreviation of all of her kindness if that helps. In a similar way, with a count noun, you can have: none of her friends, some of her friends, most of her friends, and all (of) her friends.
