Apiece or A Piece





Previous Page



Apiece or A Piece :


When you mean “each” the expression is “apiece”: these pizzas are really cheap—only ten dollars apiece.”


But when “piece” actually refers to a piece of something, the required two-word expression is “a piece ”:


“This pizza is really expensive—they sell it by the slice for ten dollars a piece.”


Despite misspellings in popular music, the expression is not “down the road apiece”.


It’s “down the road a piece.”
