Is everyday one word or two? To be honest with you, most native English speakers can’t answer this question!
1. Every day
Every day means just that: every single, individual day. It’s two words. Think of it like ‘every year’ or ‘every month’ or ‘every hour.’ It is used to describe a habit or repeated action.
Every day I try to talk to people on Twitter!
She takes her dog for a walk every day.
Try to learn a new word every day.
Everyday is also a word, but it has a completely different meaning.
Everyday (one word) is an adjective. It is used to describe a noun. According to the Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary it means ordinary, typical or usual
Her work clothes are very different from her everyday clothes.
He misses his everyday life in America.
I’m so tired of cooking boring, everyday meals. I need a change!
This is a common mistake that even native English speakers make! You may be reading something and see everyday or every day used incorrectly. Remember, there is an important difference between these words!
