Consider the three sentences below:

Sentence 1: "She loves every child with an equal amount of love."
Sentence 2: "She loves each and every child with an equal amount of love."
Sentence 3: "She loves each child with an equal amount of love."

Do the three sentences have equal meaning? Do all of the three sentences mean that, for example, if there are three children (A, B and C), she loves child A with X amount of love, she loves child B with X amount of love, and she also loves child C with X amount of love?

  • "with an equal amount"

  • for a minute, I thought you had asked the difference between 'every vs. each' and 'every vs. each', and I was like, "what??"

  • You should rephrase the title by putting each and every at the end. Right now, it looks a little like a broken record.

Yes, all the sentences convey the same meaning; she loves all the three children equally.

  • How did you guess the quantity?

  • @vv Three sentences, three children.. Makes sense to me :D Jun 13, 2016 at 23:03

Three sentences basically cover the same meaning while "each and every" put a stronger emphasis than the others.
