What is the difference between everyone and every one?
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.
'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.
- Grammar Girl  says, everyone sounds like a lot of people, but in grammar land, everyone is a singular noun and takes a singular verb. Now, if you're in Britain, you don't have to worry so much about everyone and everybody because sometimes they're considered plural.
- There are small subtle differences between when each word should be used. The word anyone means any single person, it is the singular form of the word. The word anybody, means any possible people, this is the plural form of the word.
- Everyone is a pronoun and means every person or all people. In your example everyone's denotes the possessive form of everyone. Remember that in AmE, it's always singular not plural. So the word following it should always be singular not plural, too.
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.
- Hello, Nigel, Good morning, Kendra. Answer: Yes, you need to use a comma between the person's name and the greeting. (But see exceptions below.) The reason is "direct address."
- 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.
- 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- Sincerely/ Faithfully/ Truly/Respectfully (Though they are outdated)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.
- 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). Any one is commonly followed by the preposition of.
- See Travis' answer in the same, which says: In my opinion, the big difference between "someone" and "anyone" is that "someone" refers to some person, and that person is specific, even though it may not be known, while "anyone" refers to some person, and all people are equally interchangeable as said individual.
