All = lahát

Example in use:

"Ngayon, halos *lahat na* ng gatas--Progress Gold, Enfakid A+" - Now, nearly 
all milk-- Progress Gold, Enfakid A+

Ngayón, halos lahát na ng gatas --Progress Gold, Enfakid A+
now nearly all LINK NF milk Progress Gold, Enfakid A+

* NF = non-focus marker

Don't ask me for an analysis. Im just giving an example of usage :)

They'll have a big parade for every day that you stay clean
But when the trumpets fade, you'll go under like a submarine
And you won't see it coming, no you won't see it coming
