    "... making everyday a struggle"



    "Unhappiness can damage your relationships. Hurting your family and friends and making everyday a struggle."

    What is the purpose of the indefinite article "a" right here? "Everyday" is one word which means an adjective. Also, "Everyday" can be functioned as a noun.

    Thank you,

    "everyday" is wrong here. It should be "every day".

    NOT A TEACHER
    Hi Odessa Dawn,
    I think it is similar to "it is too big a subject" structure here: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...g-subject.html

    P.S Sorry I don't see the post of bhaisahab.
