All or Whole ....
'ALL'/ 'WHOLE' : Here again, are two very simple words that beginners (and others ) have a few difficulties to handle. A choice must be made between these words, and some of you find it difficult to make it. I'll help you find your way ...
THE ALL BLACKS
1) ALL :
- 'All ' isn't followed by 'of' when it is placed just in front of a noun :
ex : All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy !
ex : All play and no work makes Jack a silly boy !
- In front of the noun : 'Day' :
ex : He's so tired that he's dreaming of staying in bed all day ( long ).
- 'All' is followed by 'of' in front of a determiner or a complement personal pronoun . (In front of a determiner, 'of' isn't compulsory, especially in British English.)
ex : Don't take only 3 sweets ! Take all of them ! = (complement personnel pronoun)
ex : All (of) the pictures I had taken were blurred ... (determiner)
You're now ready for the test ! Go for it !
