    Re: Grammar Info...

    1st: Do you know
    2nd: who is causing Bouchard all this grief

    cause (verb), make someone do or feel something
    to cause someone to do or to feel something

    EX: Someone is causing Bouchard to feel a lot of grief.

    someone: subject
    is causing: present continuous verb
    Bouchard: object of the verb
    to feel a lot of grief: object complement; e.g., Bouchard is feeling a lot of grief.

    Causative verb: Someone is making/causing Bouchard to feel something he doesn't want to feel.

    Re: Grammar Info...

    I'll ask something more... I was looking for dictionary. And I've noticed something.

    "All that" means that "such". So meaning of "all this" can be the same with that???

    Re: Grammar Info...

    It works for the sentence you're asking about.

    ... all this grief
    ... such grief
