    all summer

    My car never let me down all summer.

    what does "all summer" mean? Does it mean every summer?

    Re: all summer

    'All through the summer', 'the whole summer long'.

    I thought that but my doubt was why there wasn't the definite article "the" before summer .


    Is it wrong to put "the" before summer?

    Native speakers say 'all summer'.
