Common Mistake: Using "all most" instead of "almost"

One common mistake that many people make is using the phrase "all most" instead of "almost." While the two phrases may sound similar, they have different meanings and usage.


The adjective "almost" is used to describe an action or state that is very close to happening or being true. For example:

  • Incorrect: I all most finished my homework.
  • Correct: I almost finished my homework.

In the incorrect example, the phrase "all most" is used, which is a combination of the words "all" and "most." However, this phrase does not convey the intended meaning. To correctly express the idea of being very close to finishing the homework, the word "almost" should be used.

How to Avoid the Mistake:

To avoid this common mistake, always remember to use the word "almost" instead of "all most" when describing something that is very close to happening or being true.
