Is everybody or are everybody?
'Everyone is' is the correct version. Although 'everyone' sounds like a lot of people, it is actually a singular pronoun, and therefore requires a singular verb. Same goes for the indefinite pronouns everybody, anybody, anyone, someone, somebody, anything, everything, no one, nothing.
Everyone vs. Every One. The pronoun everyone may be replaced by everybody. It is used to refer to all the people in a group. Written as two words, every one emphasizes each individual who makes up a group, and it means each person.
- Is anyone (or any one) spelled as one word or two? The space between two words makes a difference. The indefinite pronoun anyone (one word) refers to any person at all but not to particular individuals. Any one (two words) is an adjective phrase that refers to any single member of a group (of either people or things).
- The compound word anyway is an adverb meaning "regardless." Any way is simply the word way modified by the word any. It means "any manner" or "any method."
- Anyone as a pronoun meaning “anybody” or “any person at all” is written as one word: Does anyone have the correct time? The two-word phrase any one means “any single member of a group of persons or things” and is often followed by of: Can any one of the members type? Any one of these books is exciting reading.
Answer: The first word, all nouns, and all titles are capitalized in the salutation. That's according to The Gregg Reference Manual. Gregg says nothing about the last word. As pronouns, all and everyone would not be capitalized unless they were the first word or part of someone's title, according to Gregg.
- The rule for formal letters is that only the first word should be capitalized (i.e. "Best regards"). Emails are less formal, so some of the rules are relaxed. That's why you're seeing variants from other native English speakers.
- Overall most letter formats recommend capitalizing "Sincerely". Also, if you are writing the letter on paper, it is advised to write the Salutation Block in a black or blue pen. The salutation and closing of a business letter are formulaic sentences, nothing more.
- From the top of my head, some alternatives to good old 'regards' in a formal letter/email would be:
- Warm/Best/Kind Regards.
- Good/Best/Warm Wishes.
- Have a nice day.
- Sincerely/ Faithfully/ Truly/Respectfully (Though they are outdated)
- Take Care.
- Have Fun.
- Many thanks.
Nobody, akin to no and none, means no person at all. Everybody, akin to every and all, means every one of the people referred to. Anybody, akin to any, is in between, and refers to any one or more of the people referred to, but not necessarily all of them.
