    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?

    'I was dreaming about you all night.'

    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.

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

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

    Usually, but not always, and not here.

    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."?
