    Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    Is it possible to say? Is it grammatical correct?

    Re: Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    I dreamed about you all night.
    I dreamt (BrE) about you all night.
    I was dreaming about you all night.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, your sentence was incorrect.

    Re: Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    Yes. You needed either "about" or "of" between "dreamed" and "you", and we don't say "all the night", we just say "all night".

    Re: Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    As we don't say 'all the day' but 'all day'.

    Re: Can I say " I dreamed you all the night."

    Hello teacher,
    Can I say "You are my love in my life, I want to stay with you forever."?
