    Default everytime you will

    Hi,

    -Every time (when) you come back, there is something new and impressive.

    -Everytime (that) you will study hard will provide convenience to you in future.

    Could you please check whether the usage of 'everytime and every time' is OK or not.

    Thanks.

    Default Re: everytime you will

    Your first sentence is correct, provided you leave out the when, which if used would make it incorrect.

    In your second sentence your should say every time rather than everytime. Everytime seems to have appeared in the last five years or so in pop songs, but has yet to achieve the status of a recognized English word. Also, your second sentence has a problem with sequence of tenses.

    Every time you study hard, you will enjoy benefits from your work in the future.

    Thanks a lot for the answer, but what I would like to tell you is whether I can use 'everytime, everywhere, anytime, anywhere,...etc in relative clauses in the way I have written as following sentences or not. For example:

    -Every time you study hard will provide you benefits from your work in the future.

    -As a guide, everywhere I see will provide me benefits from my work in the future.

    Thanks again.

    Again, 'everytime' is non-standard.

    It is pointless to consider it.

    Default Re: everytime you will

    Everywhere and anywhere are standard usage. Anytime does pop up in certain AmE colloquial usages. For example:

    "When are you going clean up your desk?"
    "Not anytime soon. Quit bugging me."

    But as a learner you should avoid it and stick to the standard any time.

    They are incorrect.
