5 minutes grammar lesson - Everyday or Every Day

I see mistakes with every and day almost Every Day! 😉 When should they be combined as one word and when should the be separated into two words?

Everyday means ordinary, normal, commonplace. It’s an adjective that modifies a noun: His everyday coat is dirty.

Every day means “each day.” “Every” is an adjective that modifies the noun “day:” I have to eat chocolate and drink wine every day or I will go nuts.

I am continually surprised by how many, many places mistake the two usages. Have you seen them used incorrectly? 🙂
