Everyday vs Every Day

Posted by on June 27, 2011

What’s the difference?

Everyday: denotes the ordinary, the average. My everyday clothes vs special occasion outfit.

Every  Day: Means every single day. As in ” this happens every  single  day”- a regular daily occurrence-” I read the newspaper every  day.

It’s easier to remember the difference if you say it Everyday (one word) vs  Every  (take a breath)  Day (two words with a breath in the middle).
