    You can say she spent the whole time talking or she spent all the time talking. Or you can say she talks all the time.

    Re: Whole & All

    All + Noun/Phrase
    All + Of + The ...
    All + Of + Pronoun
    The + whole (as an adj) + Noun

    Am I right?

    Re: Whole & All

    I beleive:
    All is a modified article normally of comes after it.

    Whole is an adjective.


    But still the meaning is not understood by us.

    So we need more exaplainations.

    Waitings my guys

    You need to read the whole dictionary to learn all the words in the dictionary.
