I was trying to add new version for each item in sitecore:

$root = "master:\content\home"
@(Get-Item -Path $root) + @(Get-ChildItem -Path $root) -Recurse | 
Add-ItemLanguage -Language "en-us" -TargetLanguage "en-ca" -IfExist Skip

I found the above code from sitecore community, but while executing getting the following error:

At line:2 char:56
+ @(Get-Item -Path $root) + @(Get-ChildItem -Path $root) -Recurse |
+                                                        ~~~~~~~~
Unexpected token '-Recurse' in expression or statement.

-Recurse should be in the bracket:

$root = "master:\content\home"
@(Get-Item -Path $root) + @(Get-ChildItem -Path $root -Recurse) | 
Add-ItemLanguage -Language "en-us" -TargetLanguage "en-ca" -IfExist Skip

It's a parameter for Get-ChildItem command which means it should get not only the first level children but all the descendants of the root item.
