    Use of Words

    When do you use the word 'everybody' as opposed to 'everyone?'
    thanks.

    I would use everybody to mean all the people and everyone to mean every single person. Have you done a Google search to see how they are used differently?

    They are pretty much interchangeable, but there are instances in which you would use one in preference to the other. For example, if you wanted to get everyone's attention you would shout "Everybody!"

    :)
