Posted by

Cambridge Dictionary gave the following rules that will help us learn how to use “each” and “every”.

We use each to refer to individual things in a group or a list of two or more things. It is often similar in meaning to every, but we use every to refer to a group or list of three or more things.


1. We use adverbs such as almost, practically and nearly with every, but not with each. 

Example: Almost every car in the car park was new.

2. We can use each of + pronoun or each of + determiner + noun, but with every we must use every one + pronoun or every one + determiner + noun.

Example: Each of us has a bicycle.
