Each and every exercises

What is the difference between these two words?

Read explanation

Both “each” and “every” mean “all of”. These words are often interchangeable but have a slight difference that we should remember. We use each when we refer to individual objects in a small group. We use every to speak about the group as one whole. Each is used in constructions like “We earned 500 dollars each” which means I earned 500 dollars and the other person did, too. We say every day, every 2 months, every year meaning regular intervals. The exercises on this page will help you better understand the difference and learn how to use each and every correctly.
