Editor’s Corner: Everyone

Good morning, everyone! Or is it every one?

Well, to find out the correct answer, I have a great article for you from GrammarBook.com. It’s quite helpful if you get confused about when to use everyone or every one, anyone or any one, and other sets of words like this. (And, if you’re a quiz-lover, just click the link to go to the web page and take the quiz underneath the lesson.) Enjoy!

Some words written as one word will differ in meaning when split into two words. So you need to know which word you really want.

Anymore: any longer, nowadays
Example: Harry doesn’t travel anymore.

Any more: something additional or further
Example: I don’t want any more cake.

Anyone: anybody
Example: Anyone can learn to cook but few can learn to cook well.

Any one: any single member of a group of people or things
Example: Can any one of you tell me the answer to my question?

Everyone: everybody
Example: Everyone on the list has contributed to the ASPCA.

Every one: each one
Example: I wish I could buy every one of those puppies.

Everybody: everyone
Example: Everybody is working harder today than ten years ago.

Every body: each body
Example: Every body requires protein, vitamins, and minerals.

I hope this doesn’t offend…but I thought we needed a little levity.
