Assunto:  Re: Everyday vs. every day
 
Mensagem:  Hi Gil! Yes, there is a difference. Every day (as two words) se refere a "cada dia." I go to the store every day. Every day she comes up with a new story about why she is late for work. Everyday (as one word) se refere às coisas cotidianas (I think that's the Portuguese word). Here's what Webster's Collegiate dictionary says for everyday: "Adj. 1. daily (one's everyday routine); 2. suitable for ordinary days (everyday shoes); 3. usual; common (an everyday occurrence)." Rain is an almost everyday occurrence in Portland, Oregon. (my sentence) Hope this helps, Ana
