Everyday vs. Every Day

Certain words we use in our manuscripts or daily communications spell the same but differ slightly in their meaning. For example, “everyday” is used interchangeably with “every day” quite frequently. While the former generally comes before the noun, the latter is used to modify the verb. “Everyday” means ordinary, average, regular, etc., whereas “every day” means each day. Let us see the following example to understand the difference clearly.

Incorrect: You can keep the every day clothes outside the cupboard.

Correct: You can keep the everyday clothes outside the cupboard.
