HALF | ENOUGH + OF + determiner

HALF | ENOUGH + OF + determiner

B1 Point 37 in the category of DETERMINERS is defined as:

DETERMINER + ‘OF’ + DETERMINER – an increasing range of quantifying determiners (‘half of’, ‘enough of’, ‘none of”)

*However, this partly clashes with the B2 Negation point for ‘none of’


FOR EXAMPLE:

I can’t get enough of that feeling, and that’s why I learn a language every two years.
