    Smile Every and/or each

    Hello folks,

    Could I use both ’each’ and ‘every’ in the example sentences below depending on the

    1a) Each man is allowed to be married to just one wife.
    1b) Every man is allowed to be married to just one wife.

    2a) Each artist is creative.
    2b) Every artist is creative.

    3a) Each child likes to play.
    3b) Every child likes to play.

    4a) Each author is different.
    4b) Every author is different.

    Are all the sentences correct depending if I want to refer to an individual as one (examples1a, 2a, 3a, 4a, using ‘each’ in the sense of ‘every single….’) or if I wish to refer to a group lumped together as one (examples 1b, 2b, 3b, 4b, using ‘every’)?

    Looking forward to your point of views.

    Greetings from Germany
