Hi,

I am having trouble analyzing the following sentence:

We spent almost all of our money on video games.

We is the subject

spent is the verb

is all the direct object? Is it a pronoun? Modified by of our money, an adjectival prepositional phrase? But then what part of speech is almost? Seems like an adverb, but a pronoun can't take and adverb, right?

Thanks,

Christi

In your sentence, I would clasify 'all' as a noun, as does my Canadian Oxford Paperback Dictionary.
