Unit 90. All, every and whole



Unit 90; Part A


galka.jpgAll and everybody/everyone
We do not normally use all to mean everybody / everyone:

   •    Everybody enjoyed the party.  (not All enjoyed)

But we say all of us/you/them
(not everybody of...):
   •    All of us enjoyed the party.  (not Everybody of us)

Unit 90; Part B


galka.jpgAll 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) B

But you can say all about:

   •    He knows all about computers.

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)

Unit 90; Part C


galka.jpgEvery / 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 you can use they / them / their after everybody / everyone:

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

Unit 90; Part D


galka.jpgWhole and all
Whole = complete, entire. Most often we use whole with singular nouns:
   •    Did you read the whole book(= all the book, not just a part of it)
   •    Emily has lived her whole life in Scotland.
   •    I was so hungry, I ate a whole packet of biscuits.
  (= a complete packet)

We use the / my / her
etc. before whole. Compare whole and all:
       the whole book / all the book        her whole life / all her life

We do not normally use whole with uncountable nouns.
We say:
   •    I've spent all the money you gave me.  (not the whole money)

Unit 90; Part E


galka.jpgEvery / all / whole with time words
We use every to say how often something happens
(every day / every Monday / every ten minutes / every three weeks etc.):
   •    When we were on holiday, we went to the beach every day (not all days)
   •    The bus service is excellent. There's a bus every ten minutes.
   •    We don't see each other very often - about every six months.


All day / the whole day
= the complete day from beginning to end:
   •    We spent all day / the whole day on the beach.
   •    Dan was very quiet. He didn't say a word all evening / the whole evening.

Note that we say all day
(not all the day), all week (not all the week) etc.
Compare all the time and every time:
   •    They never go out. They are at home all the time (= always, continuously)
   •    Every time I see you, you look different.
  (= each time, on every occasion)
