Distributive pronouns refer to people or things taken one at a time. Examples are: each, either and neither. Since they refer to a single person or thing at a time, distributive pronouns are always singular and are followed by singular verbs.


Each refers to everyone of a group of persons/things taken separately.

Before a noun with a determiner (the, my, this etc.) we use each of. Note that each of is followed by a plural noun and a singular verb.

Each can have different positions in a sentence.

Either and neither

Either and neither can be used only when speaking about two persons or things. Either means one or the other of two. Neither means not one nor the other of two.

When speaking about more than two persons or things any, no one or none should be used.
