    Re: all alone

    Just about anything is possible in some context or other. As it stands, it doesn't strike me as very natural- what's your idea behind the question? I'd say 'All by myself' might work better, but it's still a strange question/answer pairing IMO.

    Re: all alone

    Is it possible to say "all alone" if one is asked a question has he done it alone or was given a hand?

    Have you done it all alone?

    Yes, all alone. or simply

    All alone.

    In addition

    He has written all these procedures. All alone. (Nobody's helped him.)

    I wonder is "all alone" in my language equal to "sasvim sam".(in Croato-Serbian)
