Is "all the day" correct to you? Do you agree with the quote below about the meaning of "all the day"?


In contrast, "the" is sometimes included to refer to a past time or a general time. In this case, "the" has a meaning similar to "that":

"¢ ... He was one of the strongest minions of Thardan and could not be defeated by weapons or magic words. I spent all the day chatting and gathering experiences.

"¢ He was always there at the start of every day and spent all the day slowly swimming around the pond greeting all the other Beanies, with a jovial Quack

"¢ And if you have spent all the day birdwatching, you probably wish to get some sleep yourself.

Tara2Is "all the day" correct to you?

It's correct, but the expression "the whole day" means the same thing, and it's used thousands of times more frequently than "all the day".

Tara2Do you agree with the quote below about the meaning of "all the day"?

Yes, "the" is like "that" in that expression, but "the" is not absolutely necessary. Personally, I don't say "all the day". I say "all day" or "the whole day".
