Pet Peeve: Using the Wrong “Everyday”

A lot of people don’t realize that “everyday” and “every day” are two different things. This misunderstanding is very common, unfortunately. Basically, “everyday” is the adjective form, whereas “every day” refers to “each day.”

Examples
1. These are my everyday shoes.

2. Every day, I drink a glass of milk.

Now you know.

    Kids in my class misuse this every day. Our everyday lesson on this misuse does not seem to help 😦
