The other day

I had occasion to use the word, "all", in a sentence. The prompt, of course, was singular third-person, "is", as in, "all is". Trouble being, "all" can't be, "is". It might with argument be, "are", explicitly or implicitly, the latter of which I chose in the sentence in order to get the job done.

"All" can't be "is" because "all" can't be tidied up into singular with boundary.

Do you ken?

So, no, not All, alone, but all the content of the post. But perhaps I have missed your angle entirely, in which case, mea culpa in advance.

I understood it to mean that, too.
It was impressively slim though. As was pfeiffep's.
