    Question Every - each and all

    Hello teachers,

    I learn alone English with my old computer and sometimes I make some mistakes with the little words like these three words, 'Every', 'Each' and 'All'.

    I know there is a certainly a difference on the meaning, but I would like to know, when I need to put every, each or all.

    It's a mix in my brain.

    Thank for your collaboration.

    Best Regards.

    The French.

    Re: Every - each and all

    Every=all of the group (usually large groups).
    The hotel has 200 rooms. Every room has a bathroom.
    Every canít be used alone. NOT Every has a bathroom.
    We normally use every to say how often: every day; every Tuesday.

    Each= the group seen as individuals, normally used for small groups.
    The hotel has five rooms. Each room is decorated differently.
    Each can also be used alone or with of.
    Each (one) has a bathroom. / Each of the roomsÖ
    Each but NOT every can also be used for two things.
    There are two flats. Each (one) has a beautiful view.

    Use all + a plural or uncountable noun.
    All animals need food. / All real coffee contains caffeine. (= general)
    All the animals in the zoo look sad. / Weíve drunk all the coffee. (= specific)
    All canít be used without a noun exept with a relative clause, when it means everything or the only thing.
    Iíve got all (that) I need. Or Iíve got everything that I need.

    Thereís a difference between every and all + time expression.
    Every day = Monday, Tuesday, etc.
    All day = from the morning to the night.

    Hope that helps.
