    從數量上看:each用來指兩個或兩個以上的人或物中的一個。every則指兩個以上的人或物中的一個。

    如:There are a lot of trees on each side of the street. (不能用every side)

    大街的兩側有許多大樹。

    On each (every) side of the square there were soldiers. 廣場的四周都是兵。

    從含義和語法功能上看:each是兼類詞,即形容詞和副詞,是“單個”的意思,側重於個體、個性,在句中可作主語、同位語、定語和賓語。當形容詞作定語時後跟單數名詞,謂語動詞用單數第三人稱。

    如:

    Each student has a pen in his hand. 每個學生人手一支筆。(形容詞作定語)也可說:Each of the students has a pen in his hand. (代詞作主語)

    They each have two pens. 他們每人有兩支鋼筆。(作同位語)

    而every是“每一個”的意思,側重全體、整體、共性。在句中只能作定語,也就是說它後面必須跟名詞,名詞為單數,謂語動詞用單數第三人稱。

    如:

    Every student is here. =All the students are here. 所有的學生都出席了。

    Every boy here likes playing football. = All the boys here like playing football.

    這兒每個男孩都喜歡踢足球。

    從結構上來看:each是代詞可和介詞of連用,即:each of +名詞複數或代詞賓格,作主語時謂語動詞用第三人稱單數。如:

    Each of the students has two pens. 每個學生有兩支鋼筆。

    Each of them has two pens. 他們每人有兩支鋼筆。

    而every是形容詞不可和介詞of連用。所以不可說:every of…但可說:everyone of…

    如:Everyone of us likes listening to music. 我們每個人都喜歡聽音樂。
