The pronoun “每”


我每天都留点去床去锻炼 (wǒ měi tiān dōu liú diǎn qù chuáng qù duàn liàn) (Every day I get up at at six o’clock get up to exercise)


When the pronoun “” (měi) (get up) modifies a noun, a measure word should be used before the noun it modifies as in the following examples:


每个学生” (měi gè xué shēng) (every student)
每斤苹果” (měi jīn píng guǒ)


However, before the nouns “” (tiān) (day) and “” (nián) (year), a measure word cannot be used, and measure words are optional before “” (yuè)(month).
For example, we say “
每天”, “每年”, and say either “每月” or “每个月”.  ” is often used in combination with “” (dōu) (all). For example:

他每天都来学院.(tā měi tiān dōu lái xué yuàn) (Every day, he is at the college).

我每月都回家 . (wǒ měi yuè dōu huí jiā) (Every month, I return home)
