    Often a noun phrase is just a noun or a pronoun:

    People like to have money.
    I am tired.
    It is getting late.

    or a determiner and a noun …:

    Our friends have bought a house in the village.
    Those houses are very expensive.

    … perhaps with an adjective:

    Our closest friends have just bought a new house in the village.

    Sometimes the noun phrase begins with a quantifier:

    All those children go to school here.
    Both of my younger brothers are married
    Some people spend a lot of money.

    Quantifiers come before determiners, but numbers come after determiners:

    My four children go to school here. (All my children go to school here.)
    Those two suitcases are mine. (Both those suitcases are mine)

    So the noun phrase is built up in this way:

    Noun: people; money
    Determiner + noun: the village, a house, our friends; those houses
    Quantifier + noun: some people; a lot of money
    Determiner + adjective + noun: our closest friends; a new house.
    Quantifier + determiner + noun: all those children;
    Quantifier + determiner + adjective + noun: both of my younger brothers

    The noun phrase can be quite complicated:

    a loaf of nice fresh brown bread
    the eight-year-old boy who attempted to rob a sweet shop with a pistol
    that attractive young woman in the blue dress sitting over there in the corner
