The difference between everyday and every day.
Everyday and every day are commonly confused in English. There’s no difference in pronunciation, but using the wrong one when writing is a mistake in the everyday English you use every day.
Everyday = ordinary, regular, normal or commonplace. It can refer to something done or used daily or routinely.
Everyday is an adjective so it goes before the noun it describes.
- This is an everyday occurrence.
- It’s just an everyday event.
- It’s an everyday object.
- These shoes are great for everyday wear.
- You shouldn’t wear an everyday outfit to the wedding.
- Don’t use the everyday dishes – it’s a special occasion.
Every day = all of the days or each day over a period of time. It can also mean very regularly.
Every day is a phrase that usually acts as an adverb.
- We do this every day.
- Every day, we like to contact Future Perfect.
- Available all day every day.
- I go to the park every day.
- I have to work every day this week except Friday.
- Every day I feel a little better.
