Every and All

The English language contains many words that may be confused. Every and All have the same meaning, but their use is very different.

Every, while broad in meaning, is followed by a singular noun and the third person singular of the verb

Example: Every apple in this bag is rotten.

All, which has a similar broad meaning, is used with a plural noun and verb.

All the leaves are brown.

    Note: You can also write, "All of the leaves are brown."
