BOTH, EACH, EVERY

Both, meaning "the two, and not merely one of them," groups objects, as, "Both were men of hot temper."

Each means "all of any number, considered one by one," as, "Each boy recited in his turn."

Every means "all of any number, considered as composing a group or class," as, "Every pupil should have a dictionary and use it freely." "Every directs attention chiefly to the totality, each chiefly to the individuals composing it. It may also be observed that each usually refers to a numerically definite group....

Thus, 'Each theory is open to objection' relates to an understood enumeration of theories, but 'Every theory is open to objection' refers to all theories that may exist."

EXAMPLES:

1) Both sisters are living.
2) Each dislikes the other.
3) Both have candybars, but each prefers his own.
