    Determiners: Each, Every

    Each and every have similar but not always identical meanings.

    Each = every one separately
    Every = each, all

    Sometimes, each and every have the same meaning:

    Prices go up each year.
    Prices go up every year.

    But often they are not exactly the same.

    Each expresses the idea of 'one by one'. It emphasizes individuality
    .

    Every is half-way between each and all. It sees things or people as singular, but in a group or in general.

    Consider the following:

    Every artist is sensitive.
    Each artist sees things differently.
    Every soldier saluted as the President arrived.
    The President gave each soldier a medal.

    Each can be used in front of the verb:
    The soldiers each received a medal.

    Each can be followed by 'of':
    The President spoke to each of the soldiers.
    He gave a medal to each of them.

    Every cannot be used for 2 things
    . For 2 things, each can be used:

    He was carrying a suitcase in each hand.
    Every is used to say how often something happens:

    There is a plane to Bangkok every day.
    The bus leaves every hour.

    Verbs with each and every are always conjugated in the singular.
