every day vs everyday

  Every day - here every is a determiner and day is a noun.
  When you say every day you mean each day without exception.
  For example: You have been late for school every day this week.
  Everyday is an adjective.
  When you say everyday you mean ordinary, unremarkable.
  For example: My culture pages offer an insight into the everyday life of Britain.
  !Note - if you want to check yourself see if you could write "every morning" or "every evening" without loss of meaning. Then you'll know it should be "every day".
  I am reliably informed that in the US people happily use everyday for every situation.
