    Each / Every

    Each and Every


    Each and Every are similar in meaning. Often it is possible to use each or every.


    But they are not exactly the same:




    We use each when we think of things separately, one by one.


    Each is more usual for a small number.


    You can use each with a noun:


    each book      each student


    You can use each alone


    Each was different.


    Or each one:


    Each one was different.


    You can say each of (the.../these.../them etc)


    Read each of these sentences carefully.




    We use every when we think of things as a group.


    Every is more usual for a large number.


    We use every to say how often something happens.


    You can use every with a noun.


    You can't use every alone, but you can say every one or every one of:


    I've read every one of these books.
