All and some
Note: In the ancient phrases, all too dear, all too much, all so long, etc., this word retains its appropriate sense or becomes intensive. 2. Even; just. (Often a mere intensive adjunct.) [Obs. or Poet.] All as his straying flock he fed. --Spenser. A damsel lay deploring All on a rock reclined. --Gay. All to, or All-to. In such phrases as ``all to rent,' ``all to break,' ``all-to frozen,' etc., which are of frequent occurrence in our old authors, the all and the to have commonly been regarded as forming a compound adverb, equivalent in meaning to entirely, completely, altogether. But the sense of entireness lies wholly in the word all (as it does in ``all forlorn,' and similar expressions), and the to properly belongs to the following word, being a kind of intensive prefix (orig. meaning asunder and answering to the LG. ter-, HG. zer-). It is frequently to be met with in old books, used without the all. Thus Wyclif says, ``The vail of the temple was to rent:' and of Judas, ``He was hanged and to-burst the middle:' i. e., burst in two, or asunder. All along. See under Along. All and some, individually and collectively, one and all. [Obs.] ``Displeased all and some.' --Fairfax. All but. (a) Scarcely; not even. [Obs.] --Shak. (b) Almost; nearly. ``The fine arts were all but proscribed.' --Macaulay. All hollow, entirely, completely; as, to beat any one all hollow. [Low] All one, the same thing in effect; that is, wholly the same thing. All over, over the whole extent; thoroughly; wholly; as, she is her mother all over. [Colloq.] All the better, wholly the better; that is, better by the whole difference. All the same, nevertheless. ``There they [certain phenomena] remain rooted all the same, whether we recognize them or not.' --J. C. Shairp. ``But Rugby is a very nice place all the same.' --T. Arnold. -- See also under All, n.
Sometimes sometimes
Sometimes Some"times`, adv. [Sometime + adverbial ending -s, as in -wards.] 1. Formerly; sometime. [Obs.] That fair and warlike form In which the majesty of buried Denmark Did sometimes march. --Shak. 2. At times; at intervals; now and then;occasionally. It is good that we sometimes be contradicted. --Jer. Taylor. Sometimes . . . sometimes, at certain times . . . at certain other times; as, sometimes he is earnest, sometimes he is frivolous.
To pass something on
To pass by. (a) To disregard; to neglect. (b) To excuse; to spare; to overlook. To pass off, to impose fraudulently; to palm off. ``Passed himself off as a bishop.' --Macaulay. To pass (something) on or upon (some one), to put upon as a trick or cheat; to palm off. ``She passed the child on her husband for a boy.' --Dryden. To pass over, to overlook; not to note or resent; as, to pass over an affront.
