Q. When do you use the word ‘everyday’ and when are the words ‘every day’ more appropriate?

A. Everyday is an adjective. It means normal/ordinary/commonplace e.g.:

I use this handbag for everyday usage and this one for special occasions.

Every day means each day. The ‘every’ part is an adjective and ‘day’ is a noun. Here is an example of how to use it:

I eat breakfast every day.

Interesting word of the week:

NACARAT

Meaning: a bright red-orange colour.
