alle und alles
What's the difference between alle and alles? On tinycards alle was translated as all and alles was translated as everyone. But I just had a sentence "Alle mögen ihn" where alle was translated as everyone. Is there really a difference?
"Alle" does not necessarily mean "everyone". It can also refer to countable objects, meaning "all (of them)".
1) Alle singen das Lied. (Everyone sings the song.)
2 a) Ich habe fünf Hühner. Alle sind im Stall. (I have five chickens. All of them are in the henhouse.)
2 b) Alle fünf Hühner sind im Stall. (All of the five chickens are in the henhouse.)
