Our Living Language

In standard American English,

the word anymore is often found in negative sentences:

They don't live here anymore.

But anymore is widely used in regional American English

in positive sentences with the meaning "nowadays":

"We use a gas stove anymore"

(Oklahoma informant in the Dictionary of American Regional English).

This usage is especially associated with

the South Midland and Midwestern states,

as well as the Western states that received settlers from those areas.

The earliest recorded examples are from Northern Ireland,

where the positive use of anymore still occurs.

anymore

In the first place,

the traditional (though now uncommon) spelling is as two words:

any moreas in “We do not sell bananas any more.”

In the second place,

it should not be used at the beginning of a sentence

as a synonym fornowadays.”

In certain dialectsof English

it is common to utter phrases like

anymore you have to grow your own if you want really ripe tomatoes,”

but this is guaranteed to jolt listeners who aren’t used to it.

Even if they can’t quite figure out what’s wrong,

they’ll feelthat your speech is vaguely clunky and awkward.

Any more” always needsto be used as

pat of an expression of negation except in questions

like “Do you have any more bananas?”

Now you won’t make that mistake any more, will you?

This term, preferably spelled as one word rather than two,

means “now” “at present,” “from now on.”

use anymore only when it is accompanied by a negative

such as not, doesn’t,

or won’t.
