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 is an adjective that means commonplace, ordinary, or normal.
- 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 means “each 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.
The Bottom Line
Everyday is a single word and is an adjective, so it’s the one that is used in front of a noun to describe something as normal or commonplace. Every day is an adjective (every) plus a noun (day), and it means each day.
