Would it be instructive to merge questions?
For example, the cornucopia of these questions on "all but", with sterling answers, makes it toilsomely exacting and incommoding to compare and contrast:
●"to be all but X"
● "all but one refused to do" means everyone do it or only one did it?
● Interpreting the meaning of 'but' as an implication for exclusion/inclusion
● "All but" idiom has two meanings?
● "He all but [did something]"
● "all but at most one" - What does it mean?
