    ALL for Uncountable Noun

    Can "all" be used for uncountable nouns..?

    Example:
    'Work' is considered uncountable right..?
    Can I write..

    " You must finish all your work today."

    Opinion please..

    Yes, you can.

    All your work.
    Some of your work.
    A bit of your work.
    Little of your work. (Just not "few.")
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
