A friend of mine used the following sentence on e-mail:
Society is so weird "anymore"
I asked her whether this was a typo and she said no it was not. "Anymore"
meant "nowadays" in that context. Is this something that has been reported
before? Or just another localism (Salt Lake City area)?
Interesting.... I've been in Utah Valley (50 miles south of Salt Lake)
for 12 years, and have not noticed that usage here. On the other hand, I
heard it quite regularly at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
Did your friend grow up in Salt Lake?
