Sammanfattning (abstract):
It is not unusual for grammar books to treat the determiner every as having one function only, viz. that of more or less parallelling each, disregarding cases such as There is every reason and I wish you every happiness. The present article is an attempt to redress the balance by critically assessing presentations in some of the major grammar books and in the canonical set of five dictionaries for learners. The end result is a tentative description of three different uses of every, EVERYeach, EVERYpossible and EVERYcomplete.
