daily

Something that's described as daily happens every day. We hope your daily habits include brushing your teeth and learning new vocabulary words on Vocabulary.com.

Daily TV programs play at the same time each day, and your daily chores might include feeding the cat and loading the dishwasher. The word is also an adverb with the same basic meaning: "You'll have to visit the shelter daily to see if they get any kittens." Something is also daily if it's so normal that it's become routine, and a newspaper that's printed and read every day is called a daily as well.
