Subject: Usage: "any more"
Can anyone supply me with a first-seen-in-print cite for the usage of "any
more" not in its customary sense of "no longer" or "any longer" (Bob does not
live here any more), but meaning "nowadays" (Any more you can't tell the
difference)? I assume it is an Americanism, though I never heard it as I was
growing up. Perhaps our British and Australian colleagues can indicate whether
they hear it used that way as well. Thanks.
