How to use the word Any Way?


“Anyways” at the beginning of a sentence usually indicates that the speaker has resumed a narrative thread:


“Anyways, I told Matilda that guy was a lazy bum before she ever married him.” It also occurs at the end of phrases and sentences, meaning “in any case“: “He wasn’t all that good-looking anyways.”


A slightly less rustic quality can be imparted to these sentences by substituting the more formal anyway. Neither expression is a good idea in formal written English.


The two-word phrase “any way” has many legitimate uses, however:


“Is there any way to prevent the impending disaster?”
