Determiners: Each, Every

Each and every have similar but not always identical meanings.

Each = every one separately
Every = each, all


Sometimes, each and every have the same meaning:

  • Prices go up each year.
  • Prices go up every year.

But often they are not exactly the same.

Each expresses the idea of 'one by one'. It emphasizes individuality.

Every is half-way between each and all. It sees things or people as singular, but in a group or in general.

Consider the following:

  • Every artist is sensitive.
  • Each artist sees things differently.
  • Every soldier saluted as the President arrived.
  • The President gave each soldier a medal.

Each can be used in front of the verb:

  • The soldiers each received a medal.

Each can be followed by 'of':

  • The President spoke to each of the soldiers.
  • He gave a medal to each of them.

Every cannot be used for 2 things. For 2 things, each can be used:

  • He was carrying a suitcase in each hand.

Every is used to say how often something happens:

  • There is a plane to Bangkok every day.
  • The bus leaves every hour.
