    all that

    He accepted all that we proposed.


    Could anyone tell me which parts of speech the world `all' in this sentence?

    I think it is adverb.

    Am I right?

    It's a pronoun.

    Harry's right! It is like "everything" here and is functioning as the object ("that we proposed" is the relative clause... as I'm sure you know!)
