An important source in the study of Raši's Biblical exegesis is his commentary on the Talmud. Many words, phrases and passages are explained incidentally in this commentary and complement his Biblical commentary. Some explanations contradict those of the Biblical commentary, while others are elucidated. Furthermore, certain phrases and passages are expounded on only in his Talmudic commentary. In this article Raši's Biblical language rules regarding the terminus techinicus "all" are discussed. Some of these rules are to be found only in the Talmudic commentary and are not necessarily prerequisites to an understanding of the suggya. As to others which are also in his Biblical exegesis, an attempt is made to study the nuances and variations of the rules, which afford clues and hints towards solving one of the major problems in the study of Raši's writings — the chronological order of the commentaries on the various Biblical books and Talmudic tractates.
