Usage note

The adverb anymore meaning “any longer” or “nowadays” is most commonly spelled as one word. It is used in negative constructions and in some types of questions: Sally doesn't work here anymore. Do you play tennis anymore? In some dialects, chiefly South Midland in origin, it is found in positive statements meaning “nowadays”: Baker's bread is all we eat anymore. Anymore we always take the bus. Its use at the beginning of a sentence is almost exclusive to speech or to representations of speech.
