Aloha, fellas! How was your day? I’m so happy spending mine with some old friends. I hope you had an awesome one, too! :)
Tonight we’ll have an # session about one of English confusing word, all together vs altogether. Stay tuned, fellas! :)
First things first, I’ll share the definition to help you understand better.
Altogether means completely, entirely, or wholly.
“The map was €13.50 and the book was €5.25, so it was €18.75 altogether.”
All together means everyone or everything together.
“The countries’ people were standing all together against corruption.”
Altogether is an adverb meaning entirely. While all together is the appropriate phrase wherever “altogether” wouldn’t work.
Now I’ll give you some sentences for you to choose, whether it is all together or altogether, fits the sentence the best.
1. “Music is the most powerful form of communication in the world. It brings us (Altogether / All together)” -Sean Combs
Answer: all together
2. “It is easy for me to love myself, but for ladies to do it is another question (Altogether / All together)” -Johnny Vegas.
3. “Madness isn’t (Altogether / All together) a bad thing in comedy.” -Jo Brand.
