「All、every」 和 「whole」 都可以用來表示 「全部，所有」，但它們的用法卻不同。如果要說一個人把 「所有的」 糖都吃了，應該使用這三個詞中的哪一個？如果要說一個人把 「整個」 蛋糕都吃了，又應該用哪個詞？看視頻，跟主持人 Georgina 學習這三個常用詞的區別。
Hi, I’m Georgina from BBC Learning English. Do you ever wonder about the difference between all, every and whole? They all have similar meanings but are used in different ways.
All means the whole amount of something – 100%! It is often followed by uncountable nouns or plural nouns.
He ate all the sugar!
All children love sweets!
Every has a similar meaning to all. It means each one without exception.
I go to the gym every day.
Whole means the complete amount of something and is followed by uncountable nouns or singular nouns.
I ate the whole cake!
The whole airport is closed!
Bye for now!
