Is it all day or all day?

The difference between every day and all day.
All day = the entire day, or a large part of the day.. Every day = each day; on all of the days over a certain period of time (weeks, months, years). It can also mean regularly.

Likewise, people ask, is all day one word or two?

The two-word term every day is an adverbial phrase that answers the questions when or how often, as in I learn something new every day. As one word, everyday is an adjective that means "ordinary" or "part of a daily routine": These are my everyday clothes.

Likewise, what is considered all day?

Definition of all-day. : lasting for, occupying, or appearing throughout an entire day an all-day trip.

When should you separate every day?

First, as I said above, everyday is an adjective, so if you are looking to modify a noun, you will want to use everyday. Second, every day is synonymous with the phrase each day. If you can replace every day with the words each day and it still makes sense, then the two-word phrase is probably correct.

Is a day actually 24 hours?

Modern timekeeping defines a day as the sum of 24 hours – but that is not quite correct. The Earth's rotation slows down over time. So in terms of solar time, most days are a little longer than 24 hours.
