    Re: every/any

    Apart from the typo in #3, what's the difference between the first and second set?
    They're correct, though not synonymous.

    Re: every/any

    Thanks a lot TDOL and sorry for the mess-up.
    The second set was supposed to be:

    3-I would like working with any techincian.
    4-I would like working with every technician.

    At first I did not see the difference in the meanings. Now I think I get it.

    3 would mean: any one will do.
    4 would mean: I would like to work with all of them individually.

    Am I correct?
