    Is the word "all" a preposition in this sentence

    Hello, is the word "all" a preposition in the sentence: "All I want to do is just spend as much time with you as possible."
    I checked the Merriam-Webster Learner's Dictionary and when "all" means the only thing it functions as a preposition, however I'm not exactly sure about that. I would like your suggestions too. What do you think? Your time is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I cannot think of a context in which 'all' could be a preposition. It's a pronoun in your sentence. Are you sure you did not misread the M-W entry?
