Proper sentence


We write 'every morning and night' or every morning and every night'? Example: she brushes her teeth every morning and night. Or she brushes her teeth every morning and every night.'? Thanks.

It suffices to use a single 'every' in the sentence. 'Every' as an adjective modifies the nouns morning and night. To repeat it for both the nouns is a tautaulogy. Nevertheless all of the two ways are right and they express the same meaning. But the emphasis of the double usage indicates intensity as Tolley stressed.
