A Lógica do Inglês #39 – Família do EVERY | EVERY, EVERYONE, EVERYONE, EVERYTHING e EVERYWHERE

Every é uma palavra que dá ideia de plural, mas tem concordância de singular.
Sempre vamos usar com palavras no singular, ou quando for sujeito da frase, usaremos verbos no singular.
Tratamos o every e seus derivados como terceira pessoa.

Vamos estudar alguns exemplos:

EVERY: TODO/TODOS/TODA/TODAS

I don’t go to work every day.
Every seat in the plane was taken.
(Caso for usar ALL ao invés de EVERY, é necessário a concordância no plural)
All the seats in the plane were taken.
We go out every Friday night.

EVERYBODY/EVERYONE: TODOS/TODO MUNDO

Everybody likes parties.
She knows everyone in the condo.
Does everybody know what to do?

EVERYTHING: TUDO/TODAS AS COISAS

He thinks he knows everything.
Everything here is broken.

EVERYWHERE: TODO LUGAR

The children left toys everywhere in the house.
Everywhere is crowded at Christmas.

Existe um outro caso que usamos every: para indicar intervalos.

Exemplos:

The buses run every ten minutes.
We should have a checkup with the dentist every six months.
You gotta take this antibiotic every 8 hours.
I go to the fitness center every other day.
