    Thumbs down expert knowledge/all but

    Hello, teachers

    It's Pinkgreat. I'm here to ask you some questions.

    1. What does "expert knowledge" mean?

    2. Does 'all but' mean 'all without exception'?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: expert knowledge/all but

    1 It means 'specialist knowl;edge', available to restricted people- you could know a lot about health, but a doctor will still have expert knowledge that you won't.
    2 all but = very nearly- We all but failed = we passed, but could easily have failed
