any time vs. anytime
Do these have the same meaning in each sentence?
1. You could have met her [any time, anytime] you liked.
2. Jake is going to be here [any minute, any time, soon].
3. I don't think we can keep it under covers [any longer, much longer].
Thank you very much.
All OK again, Jandi. 'Any minute' is a little sooner than the others, but everything else is reasonably synonymous.
Have a good day!
