    Grammar ALL

    A All she says is not correct

    B All that she says is not correct

    Is it possible to say A and do they mean exactly the same thing?

    (1) I think (that) it would be more natural if you said something like:

    Everything (that) she says is wrong. (You can leave out the "that" in conversation. Maybe it might be nice to include it in writing.)

    (2) Here is a true story. Many years ago, an American woman writer hated another

    American woman writer. This is what the first writer said about the second writer:

    "Every word she writes is a lie, including and and the."
