Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Each, considered indefinitely as a unitary part of an aggregate; all, of a collective or aggregate number, taken one by one; any, as representing all of whom or of which the same thing is predicated. A proposition containing every before a class name is equivalent to the totality of statements formed by replacing this expression by the name of each individual of the class. But if not is placed before every, the meaning is that some one or more of these individual propositions are not true. Thus, “not every man is a poet” does not mean that not any man is a poet, but only that some men are not poets. In many cases, however, every is ambiguous.
- each one (of the whole number); every person; everybody.
- Each of any number of persons or things; every one.
- n. An obsolete form of ivory. Wright
- All of a countable group, without exception.
- Used with ordinal numbers to denote those items whose position is divisible by the corresponding cardinal number, or a portion of equal size to that set.
