    every

    Hi there,

    I would like to know if it is correct using every + plural .
    "take it every 2 hours" is it correct? I ve learnt to use every + singular.
    Could you help?
    Thank you

    Re: every

    Take it every day.
    Take it every hour.

    and in 'every 2 hours', the '2 hours'' is similarly a single period of time of 2 hours duration, and 'it' is taken at the end of that period of time - "Every time 2 hours elapses, take it." Hence 'every 2 hours' is singular.
