Anyway vs. Anyways vs. Any way

Your grammar is a reflection of your image. Good or bad, you have made an impression. And like all impressions, you are in total control.
— Jeffrey Gitomer

Anyway or Anyways? That is the question. As our spoken language becomes more and more causal so does our written language; and some uses of words are flat out incorrect. The English language is not consistent or predictable but that doesn’t mean you can just make up your own grammar rules. Many people put “s” on the end of words that don’t belong there. For example, anyways vs. anyway. Anyways is incorrect. Anyway is correct.


INCORRECT: I never understood why we take that route every day. Anyways, I decided to take a different route to school.


CORRECT: I never understood why we take that route every day. Anyway, I decided to take a different route to school.  

Sonow we know the correct use of anyway is anyway, it brings about the question when should you use anyway as one word and two words? Anyway (one word) can be used to mean in any case. When written as two words, any way can be replaced by in any manner or by any means


So here's to making a good impression upon others the next time you use the word or words anyway or any ways. Your grammar is vital toward your image. Use it wisely. Your ability to articulate can mean a lot toward your ability to elevate; plus, It's your Write (right) on a Wednesday to exercise this! - Candid Brandon
