Everyone vs. Every One of Us

'Everyone' and 'every one of us' both refer to 'every individual member of a complete group'. But are they interchangeable? Let's see.

What Is The Difference?

When we want to state every single individual person in a group of people, we use 'of + noun (phrase).' Using this structure, we cannot say 'everyone of + noun (phrase).'

We should put a space between 'every' and 'one' → every one of + noun (phrase)

Everyone was surprised when they heard the news.

Every one of us was surprised when we heard the news.

This sentence is NOT correct.

Everyone of us was surprised when we heard the news.

When we put a space between 'every' and 'one' in the structure "every one of + noun (phrase)", we can put another word between 'every' and 'one'. See the example:

Every single one of us wanted to have a chance to win.
