Am I correct in saying that Dutch has no distinction in "all the" and "all"? Would it be always rendered the same: "alle" ?

In 70 years I have never heard an English person say 'So long'. I must resign myself to learning American English as well as Dutch.

Well, this sentence is a quote from English author Douglas Adams...

Anyway, plenty of alternatives are accepted, like the cognate "farewell".
