Our, any, and own can take both plural and singular nouns.

All will take a plural.

*Any is complicated and will usually take the plural in the negative: I don't have any children, I can't see any mistakes, I won't have any cookies left if you keep eating them.
can these words followed by verbs and how to know how to use any?Can any use in singular ?

No, they come before nouns.

I have given you an example of "any" with a singular noun.
ok.But if this sentence, is it correct ? ' It all adds to the flavour ' or ' It all add to the flavour '.You said all is for plural and these words cannot followed by verb but only can followed by noun ? But why all is followed by verb in this case.I get this sentence from my english book.Thanks.

Hi,

Sometimes we take singular or plural depending on the meaning. In this case ALL is not the subject. The subject is IT. So "It all adds to the flavor" is correct. But if you use ALL as your subject it goes like this...i.e. "ALL (employees) have informed about the holiday".

Let's wait for the authorities.

Thanks!

I could not have said it better than mudclay did.

When used as a determiner (if that's the right word), it takes a plural noun.

All as the only subject does take a singular verb. All is well. All is as it should be. All is lost.
Maximus69' It all adds to the flavour '
This is not an intelligible sentence to my ear without additional context. But you should recognize "it" is the subject to the verb "add", and therefore the third person singular rule applies. Are you familiar with this phrase " it all depends..."? All -means entirely, and it has nothing to do with numbers.
