Any more vs. Anymore
Before wrapping up the presentation, Melinda asked if the audience had anymore questions.
As a single word, anymore means nowadays. Additionally, proper usage of the word requires that any statement containing the word be negative. For example:
Things just aren’t built to last anymore.
In the “presentation” sentence above, Melinda wants to know if there are any additional questions, which requires the two-word version—any more.
An easy way to remember the difference:
- anymore (one word) = nowadays (one word)
- any more (two words) = any additional (two words)
