each
British English: /iːtʃ/
American English: /itʃ/
Each is used for any number of persons or things considered separately (whereas every implies any number considered together): each boy has his own bike = ciascun ragazzino ha la propria bicicletta. - Each takes a singular verb except when it comes after a plural word: each of them is coming but they each are coming = viene ognuno di loro. - Note that each is accompanied by a plural pronoun when both males and females are referred to: each student must have their own book = ogni studente deve avere il suo libro.
