    Re: "everyone" separated or not

    The rule is, everyone is one word when it means a group, everybody. Every one is two words when the meaning is each one. However, people are known to ignore 'rules' and do as they please; i.e., "everyone of us". You'll find that semantics is the key: all of us = everyone of us.

    All the best.
