What is meaning of "every nooks and corner" and "every nooks and cannary"?
'Every nook and corner' = 'every nook and cranny'.
'nook'='cranny'='corner' in these stock phrases; they mean 'every small, out-of-the-way place, usually in a building, where something might be lost or hidden', and it usually appears in sentences like 'I have searched every nook and corner, but cannot find my reading glasses' or 'we won't rest until we have scoured every nook and cranny for the criminal!'
