    half all each

    Hello,

    I would like to learn whether we can use the same meaning of them without 'of'.

    All of my children= all my children (it is correct)

    Half of my children= half my children(it is correct)

    Each of my children= each my children (Is it correct?)

    Every of my children= every my children(Is it correct?)

    The rest of my children= the rest my children(Is it correct?)

    Any of my children= any my children(Is it correct?)........

    Thanks

    Re: half all each

    Each of my life? How many lives do you have?

    Only the first two are correct. Only the first two and "the rest of my life" are reasonable, natural things to say.

    Re: half all each

    No. Just the first is OK. Maybe "half my children" in some cases. The rest, no.
