todo, etc.

When, if ever, should todo (a,os,as) be followed by the preposition "de"?

Hola Gerald

I can't think of any context where we'd use todo followed by "de". We use todo as a pronoun:

Lo has hecho todo. 

You've done it all.

As an adjective:

Todos los días

Everyday

Todo el pollo

The whole chicken

But we don't use the preposition "de" (I imagine you're thinking about the English "all of something", as in for example "all of Scotland", "all of it", "all of the students"?). We'd say:

Toda Escocia

Todo eso/ello

Todos los estudiantes

...

Saludos
