Confusing Words Of The Week

It’s time for “Confusing Words of the Week” where I take a set of two or three words that get confused and give you definitions and try to give you a memory trick to help you remember when to use which word. If you have words that confuse you, use the Ask PTB tab on the website or send an email to proofthatblog@gmail.com and they may appear here soon!

This week’s words are:

  • everyday – ordinary
    • She was wearing her everyday shoes.
  • every day – each day
    • She spent every day wishing she could wear heels.

Memory tips:

  • everyday – it is a single word, so kind of an ordinary word
  • every day – remember this as every SINGLE day, so it has to have a space between it.

For more information on these words, there is a blog post about it at http://proofthatblog.com/2014/03/13/we-appreciate-proofreading-tips-each-and-everyday/
