"At all" for emphasis

Monday, March 10, 2014

There are certain words or expressions we use for emphasis and at all is a perfect example. Meaning in any way, "at all" is used to make negative sentences or questions stronger.

Marco doesn't like sushi at all.

Was George injured at all?

Rescheduling our appointment isn't a problem at all.

Did you understand those directions at all?

"At all" may be confusing to an English learner when first encountering these two words together but don't hesitate to use them in your speaking and writing.
