    All or Whole

    All and Whole


    All and Whole are determiners.

    We use them before nouns and with other determiners to refer to a total number or complete set of things in a group.

    -All the cast had food poisoning. They were forced to cancel the show. (all+determiner+noun).

    -The whole cast. (determiner+whole+noun).

    -All my family lives abroad. Or, My whole family lives abroad.

    We often use all and the whole with of the.

    -She complains all of the time. Or, ... She complains the whole of the time. 

    We use a/an with whole but not with all.

    -I spent a whole day looking for a book.

    Not ...... all a day.

    - Wholly means entirely.

    Hope this helps.
