Usage notesEdit

  • Everyone takes a singular verb: Is everyone here?; Everyone has heard of it. However, similar to what occurs with collective or group nouns like crowd or team, sometimes a plural pronoun refers back to everyone which is also reflected in verb conjugations: Everyone was laughing at first, but then they all stopped. / Everyone has a smart phone nowadays, don't they?
