Shelton, who wants to live in Europe, asks...
What is the difference between the word any more and anymore. Could you provide an example?
Anne answers...
Anymore (one word) is used when you mean "Nowadays" or "Presently." For instance, you might say "Anymore people don't think it's rude to use cellphones in public places. Any more (two words) is used when you're talking about the quantity of something. "I don't want any more pizza." "I haven't any more money."
