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.
