    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.
