Everyone and Every One

Previous Page

Everyone and Every One :

“Everyone” means “everybody” and is used when you want to refer to all the people in a group:

“Everyone in my family likes spaghetti carbonara.”

But if you’re referring to the individuals who make up a group, then the phrase is “every one.”


“God bless us, every one” (may each individual in the group be blessed).

“We wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas” (every single one of you).

In the phrase “each and every one” you should never substitute “everyone”).
