    Anymore vs. Any More

    Definition of anymore: At present or from now on.

    Definition of any more: No more.

    Example: I'm sick of that cat, I don't want it anymore. If I have to put up with any more of its nonsense, I'll shoot it.

    Oops! You used the wrong form of it's/its.

    Perhaps you need a proofreader?

    D'oh! Typo. Fixed.

    I really should have proofread my own post, before having posted it. I'm half asleep today, again. Curse having to wake up at 7:15am for school on weekdays and cycling in the weekends! I rarely get sleep-ins.

    Haha I rarely use this word. I didn't even think that it would have multiple forms. Thanks for sharing =)

    Anywhere means any place. It has a completely different definition.

    "i" should be capitalised.

    "anyinstance" should be two words.

    "it" should be capitalised. Always capitalise the first word of every sentence.

    "doessnt" should be "doesn't."

    Don't take this negatively. It's constructive criticism, that I honestly think you could do with.

    A similar problem exists with every day / everyday.

    I eat my breakfast every day.

    Eating my breakfast is an everyday occurrence!

    You're taunting a lynch mob.

    english isn't my mother tongue.
    and i personally think grammar will only be noticed when you write it but when we speak, it don't matter till we won't understand. but we always find ways,

    we curse each other when we don't understand.
