1: Anyways, thank you.
2: Anyway, thank you.
YankeeAs far as I know, 'anyways' is used primarily in American English, though it is not used by all Americans. It is an informal, nonstandard form of 'anyway'.My American Heritage dictionary lists it as non-standard.
Anonymous:Anyways is the plural of anyway. Because anyway can in no way be used as a noun, it cannot be pluralized. Only nouns can be pluralized. Anyways is most definatly not a word.
Anonymous:I think "anyway" is correct.
I hear "anyways" in Canada. However, according to Oxford American Dictionary
anyways is incorrect.
Anonymous:Anyway is an adverb and adverbs cannot be plural. Anyways is a colloquial usage and is non-standard English.
