    All, everything or everybody/ everyone.

    A/- All and everybody/ everyone


    We do not normally use all to mean everybody/everyone:

       Everybody enjoyed the party, (not 'All enjoyed...')


     But note that we say all of us/ you/ them, not 'everybody of...':

    All of us enjoyed the party, (not 'everybody of us')


    B/- All and everything

    Sometimes you can use all or everything:

    • I’ll do all I can to help,   or I’ll do everything I can to help.


    You can say 'all I can' / 'all you need' etc. but we do not normally use all alone:

    • He thinks he knows everything, (not 'he knows all')

    • Our holiday was a disaster. Everything went wrong, (not 'All went wrong')


    We use all in the expression all about:

    • They told us all about their holiday.

    We also use all (not 'everything') to mean the only thing(s):

    All I've eaten today is a sandwich. (= the only thing I've eaten today)


    C/- Every/ everybody/ everyone/ everything are singular words, so we use a singular verb:

    Every seat in the theatre was taken.

    Everybody has arrived, (not 'have arrived')


     But we often use they/ them/ their after everybody/ everyone:

    Everybody said they enjoyed themselves. (= he or she enjoyed himself or herself)


    Complete these sentences with all, everything or everybody/ everyone.
