2. Chiefly Midland US Nowadays.
Our Living Language In standard American English, the word anymore is often found in negative sentences: They don't live here anymore. But anymore is widely used in regional American English in positive sentences with the meaning "nowadays": "We use a gas stove anymore" (Oklahoma informant in the Dictionary of American Regional English). This usage is especially associated with the South Midland and Midwestern states, as well as the Western states that received settlers from those areas. The earliest recorded examples are from Northern Ireland, where the positive use of anymore still occurs.
