“Anyways” is not a word. It does not exist. The word is “anyway,” not “anyways.” I have lived a long time with this stuck in my craw, but it’s about time I got it out.
Even the use of the word “anyway” becomes annoying because people use it haphazardly whenever they want to change the subject of a conversation. It’s really not a conversation changer…..Dictionary.com gives us this definition: “in any case; anyhow; nonetheless; regardless: Whether you like it or not, I’m going anyway.” It in no way sets it up as a subject changer for conversations. In any case, it’s the word “anyway” that should be used, not the abomination “anyways!”
Please stop using it, it’s like nails on a chalkboard whenever I hear it come out of someone’s mouth.
