Definition

When you think about it, English outside the subcontinent is utterly impoverished. We South Asians communicate so much using only a few words.

What all is an example of this - communicates jocularity, a certain joie de vivre, while commenting on the excesses of another person's actions.

Translated from the vernacular - Yen ella...

Usage

What all you do I say, going here going there. So busy...


What all those teachers have asked me to study, man. Buggers all of them.

What all you are doing , Vatal Nagaraj.
