Every Day; Everyday

  • 10 Aug, 2008

Use everyday (one word) only when adjectival, as an [i]everyday occurrence[/i], our [i]everyday life[/i].

In all other cases, use two words: ‘He comes here [i]every day[/i].’ ‘[i]Every day [/i]somebody dies.’

It's amazing how a little word that looks innocuous changes the entire meaning of a sentence.

Keep this difference in mind, and stop making this simple error an everyday occurrence.
