We use every + [singular noun] + [singular verb] to talk about all the individual members in a group of things or people:

  • Every film by Humphrey Bogart is a classic.
  • Every report he writes is quite interesting to read.
  • Every glass in that cabinet has a crack or chip.

We use all + [plural noun] + [plural verb] to talk about all an entire group of things or people. When you want to talk about a specific group, you can use All of the:

  • All films have a musical soundtrack.
  • All of the films by Steven Spielberg are exciting.
  • All glasses are delicate, and need to be handled with care
  • All of the glasses in that cabinet have a crack or chip.

Note the difference between every + [time] and all + [time]

  • Every morning I eat yogurt and cereal (every morning means, Monday morning, Tuesday morning, etc…)
  • I work hard all morning (all morning means from the time I wake up until noon)

What do you usually have for breakfast every morning? Are you busy all morning?
