I know the difference between everybody and everybody else, but can sometimes everybody implies everybody else?
She didn't know what she said was a faux pas until everybody else stopped talking and looked at her strangely.
Can I say everybody only to imply everybody else in above sentence?
Is it understandable but strange, or is it just fine and normal, or totally unacceptable?
BTW, in my native language, it's perfectly fine just to say "everybody" to me.
