  1. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
    ALL TOGETHER AND ALTOGETHER

    If the two terms can be separated, that’s a dead giveaway that the term you want is all together.

    • If you can replace the term with something like "completely" or "when all is said and done," you are altogether better off with altogether. 

    If you can rewrite the sentence to use all and together separately, the term you want is all together.
