All, Everybody and Everything

All not alone = Everybody

  • all the people stood up
  • Everybody stood up (not all stood up)

all + relative clause (=all (that)…) = everything

  • all (that) I have is yours (or Everything…)
  • Everything is yours (not all is yours)
  • She lost all she owned ( or …Everything she owned)
  • She lost Everything (not She lost all)

all often = negative meaning = nothing more= the only thing

  • This is all I’ve got
  • all I want is a place to sleep

– That’s all = It’s finished
