all of a red wine

< Previous | Next >


Last night we watched a movie, in it a man was in an airplane, the stewardess asked him, "would you like red or white wine, Sir?"
He answered: "All of a red wine."

What does this expression mean "all of a ..."? Why not just say "a red wine"?

    I agree. "I'll have a" can often sound odd in many English (language) accents. It can sound like -
    "All of a"
    "I love a"
    "Oil laver"
    "Ah lover"
    Not easy, I know.
