Title pretty much askes the question. What is the term for words like 'bottle', 'cup' or 'clove' (as in clove of garlic). Are they counters, countables, determiners...? I swear it's on the tip of my tongue but I cannot find the correct term.
What you are talking about is a measure word, more formally known as a numeral classifier.
(You could also use "counter".)
