    Ah, I see. But I want to know how to use them correctly. If the sentence is:
    Nowadays, violence seems to be a (an) ...... occurence
    which do you choose?

    "a daily" and "an everyday" are both correct.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) You have asked a super difficult question.

    (2) It cannot be answered in one post.

    (3) I respectfully suggest that you check each word in a good bilingual dictionary.

    (4) Let me give you a few ideas:

    (a) daily is an adjective. "Violence is a daily occurrence." That means that there is

    violence on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

    For example, I live in an American city where violence is a daily occurrence. This year

    more than 500 people have been murdered (killed by bad people).

    (b) everyday is also an adjective. It really means something like "an activity that is

    very common and usual." So "Violence is an everyday occurrence" means something

    like "Violence is almost normal. Maybe there is NOT violence 7 days a week, but

    there IS violence 4 or 5 days every week."

    (c) every day is an adverb. It tells us when something happens:

    Violence happens every day in big cities.
    We all eat breakfast every day.
    Every day Tom comes to work late.
    I visit usingenglish.com every day.

    (5) For some older people such as I, reading a daily newspaper is an

    everyday activity. Many younger people, however, do not read a

    newspaper every day.
