Any More or Anymore?


I am wondering if anyone else out there is confused by the "any more" or "anymore" spellings and meanings. Perhaps I was absent the day this topic was taught way back when. Or maybe this is new, like "anyways".

Thanks for your help.


See example:

I didn't feel guilty any more, and I was pretty sure I had nothing left in the way of feelings.

Anymore has evolved from any more.  Some people will tell you that it is not proper to make it one word.  Language constantly changes.  For instance, the dictionary now lists ginormous as a word.


A bit of research reveals the difference between any more and anymore, as used today.


Anymore means any longer.  I don't feel guilty anymore


Any more indicates a quantity.  I don't have any more books to read.
