Alls Is a Grammar Error

Posted by languageandgrammar on December 17, 2008

I heard someone on television (one of my favorite resources for grammar errors) use the grammar error Alls, as in Alls I know is…. It’s not an error that I hear often, but it has been around for a very long time. I remember a childhood family friend saying it—and that was eons ago!

There is no alls; the standard word is All, as in All I know is that we were supposed to meet at 8:00.
