“all but” - I hate that expression!

  • October 17, 2004, 3:32pm

There are more direct ways to express that meaning. Personally, I trip over a sentence containing that expression every time. Also, I've only seen this in writing but don't remember hearing it spoken (I record lectures for radio on a frequent basis). To me that indicates speakers of English are not too fond of it.

As for Jun-Dai's comment: "not appropriate" - huh??
