Sometimes definitions of anyway and anyways get mixed up. According to you what is the major difference between their meaning? And which sentence is more correct to say:

1: Anyways, thank you.

2: Anyway, thank you.

Hi all,

According to my knowledge of English grammer, we cannot use any plural after use of "any". The only exception is the use of "of" after "Any" and only then we can use plurals. For eaxmaple, I don't like any of these schools. So I am sure that "anyway" is the correct use as far as British English is concerned. But we hear everday people using "anyways" for some or the other reasons. That is true that it might be a corruption of "anyways". USE OF "ANYWAY" IS RECOMMENDED.

That is incorrect.

'I don't want any beans, thank you.'

"Anyways" is the bastardisation of the word "anyway" which has become promulgated via Hollywood films and television shows. It has further encroached into literature and into many "translated works" due to the hiring of people who use local and dialectal terminology rather than standardised versions (see many English translations of Japanese media, including anime, manga and live action films).
"Anyways" is now used throughout the English speaking world and although its use is still by a minority of speakers said use appears to be expanding rapidly (or so it seems taking note of social media trends). This is likely, however, to mean that in about 10 - 20 years hence "anyways" will be an accepted spelling of "anyway", sadly.
