Subject: Re: Anymore...
Tom Murray's article in HEARTLAND ENGLISH shows (with maps) greater incidence
of positive 'anymore' in the North Midland areas of the corn- and wheat-belt
states than in the Inland North areas. He had data from OH IN IL MI WI MO IA
MN KS NE SD ND. In some constructions positive 'anymore' also was frequent in
all these states.
I agree with Rudy Troike that, at least for those of us born before WW II,
this usage is not common in regional dialects in Texas.
