Hi all. I really appreciate the various questions you all have done justice to. Would like to ask though, which is appropriate to use, 'everytime' or 'every time'? Thank you!

    Just to add to Out's perfectly correct answer: Welcome to the forum, Baw! As far as I am aware, we don't have many foreros from English-speaking countries in Africa, so it will be interesting to hear your comments on other people's questions.

    Well, thanks Lex and I'll be sure to do so. Now, whatever do you mean by "fereros"? I absolutely do not have a clue.

    Welcome Baw. I am also interested in seeing how you view our version of English.

    The last time I was in Chicago the cab driver that took me to the airport was from Nigeria and his English was so refined and he was so well-spoken that I felt like a foreigner myself.

    This post is a natural product. The slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and in no way should be considered flaws or defects.

    Hello baw, and welcome to WordReference :)

    I'm another voice suggesting that every time should be two words, every time :)
    You'll find everytime (one word) in song lyrics, of course, but you can find all kinds of non-standard language in song lyrics.
