or is it for ever?
Uh, not quite, http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/everyday
Magnus is right. "Every day" and "everyday" mean two different things. "Every day" consists of an adjective (every) plus a noun (day), which is what I think you were trying to say. "Everyday," as a single word, is an adjective. Here's an example of its use: Going out to lunch was an everyday event at that company.
"I come here every day" is a complete sentence, but "I come here everyday" arguably is not (what is the adjective "everyday" modifying?).
Thanks, jmblue. The comment was made as a joke, but it was true... Knowing the difference between "every day" and "everyday" is part of my everyday job, so I deal with things like this every day.
Anyway, I originally made the comment to be funny and now we're being serious about it. Now I feel like a dick.
like a dick." Don't. There isn't one of us here that are so damn bright that they can't learn something from another poster. There was nothing snarky about your comment.
Make them explain it.
My grandmother would occasionally get pissed at me and do exactly that. She was an ex-teacher, which probably had something to do with it...
I stand corrected
... when we have to read shit like this. Grow some balls dude.
