Hi everyone! I am new here and I desperately need help. :oops: Could you please tell me the difference between EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE? When should I use the former and when should use the latter? Your answer would be greatly appreciated.
ANYWHERE refers to an indefinite place. it is used when it is not necessarily important where.
“where shall we go for a drink?” “anywhere”
“where do you want me to put the table?” “You can put it anywhere”
EVERYWHERE is more all-encompassing. so it means in every place, or in all places.
“he carried a notebook with him everywhere he went”
Thanks a lot Benjamin. But something isn’t clear to me yet. I’ve visited a few sites and they’ve said that we use “any” words - anybody, anyone, anywhere and anything - in negative sentences or questions. Are “any” words really just limited to these sentences? I believed that anywhere could also be used in affirmative sentences, but when I visited those sites, I started to doubt myself. And now, you gave me an affirmative sentence with the word anywhere. Please help me. :?
Thanks in advance.
