    Re: Whole & All

    You can say she spent the whole time talking or she spent all the time talking. Or you can say she talks all the time.

    All + Noun/Phrase
    All + Of + The ...
    All + Of + Pronoun
    The + whole (as an adj) + Noun

    Am I right?

    Re: Whole & All

    I beleive:
    All is a modified article normally of comes after it.

    Whole is an adjective.


    But still the meaning is not understood by us.

    So we need more exaplainations.

    Waitings my guys
