adj., pron.

Old English ælc “any, all, every, each (one), short for a-gelic “ever alike,” from a “ever” (see aye (2)) + gelic “alike” (see like (adj.)).

From a common West Germanic expression *aiwo galika (cf. Dutch elk, Old Frisian ellik, Old High German iogilih, German jeglich “each, every”). Originally used as we now use every (which is a compound of each) or all; modern use is by influence of Latin quisque. Modern spelling appeared late 1500s. Also cf. ilk, which.
