anymore

Use the adverb anymore to mean "any further" or "any longer." Your grandfather might complain that there aren't any good family movies anymore.

If you don't do something anymore, it means you once did it but now you don't: "Yeah, I don't take Irish step dancing lessons anymore." If you put your fingers in your ears while your brother is talking, you make it clear you're not listening anymore. Sometimes anymore is spelled as two words, any more — both are considered correct, with anymore being more common in the US.
