EVERYDAY VS. EVERY DAY (1): meaning and examples

Good morning, Today we are going to examine the difference between everyday (adjective) and every day (adverb). EVERYDAY (adjective) It means: something that is considered normal or average Example 1 Why do you want to use that particular pen? It's just an everyday, black ball-point pen. There's nothing special about it. Example 2 I need to buy some everyday shoes. You know? Something really comfortable for walking around in; nothing too fancy. Example 3 He doesn't find his job particularly fulfilling because he only has to do everyday tasks. Ideally, he would like a greater challenge. You can see in the above examples that we frequently use the word just or only combined with everyday. This is because everyday emphasizes the fact that something is not special or different, but average. Tomorrow we will learn about every day (adverb).
