English to Japanese translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:one per all
I don't know the context. I need just general meaning
Explanation: I have to assume that the meaning here to be that all of something are getting one of something given to each of them. Zutsu cannot be used alone, but is placed after a word or set of words to indicate distribution.
一つずつ[hitotsu zutsu](one each / each person or what ever the subject might be gets one.)
三人に一つずつ[sannin ni hitotsu zutsu](one to every three persons.)
If you omit the number of people, it is assumed to be one. Hope this helps.
