What's the Difference Between 'Any More' and 'Anymore'?

In this blog post we look at when to use any more and when to use anymore.

'Any More' or 'Anymore'?

'Anymore' and 'any more' are two different phrases with distinct meanings.

'Anymore' is an adverb that means 'nowadays' or 'currently.' It is typically used in negative statements or questions to indicate that something is no longer happening or true. For example:

  • "I don't go to that restaurant anymore." (meaning that I used to go to the restaurant, but I don't anymore)

  • "Do you still have that book anymore?" (meaning that I'm asking if the person still has the book currently)

'Any more' is a phrase that consists of the adverb 'any' and the adjective 'more.' It means 'additional' or 'further.' It is typically used to ask if there is more of something, or to indicate that there is more of something. For example:

  • "Do you want any more pizza?" (meaning that I'm asking if the person wants more pizza)

  • "There aren't any more cookies left." (meaning that there are no additional cookies left)

In summary, 'anymore' is used to talk about the present, while 'any more' is used to talk about additional quantities of something.
