    Default anyways or anyway?

    It has become an expression in my my country but I don't know the distinction of those words. When do we say "anyway" and "anyways"? Does "anyways" exist?

    Thanks again.

    'Anyways' is colloquial and more suitable used in speech than in writing. :wink:

    It's also American. Some people also say "anywho". (Seems to be quite trendy these days)

    In any case, 'anyway(s)' is not proper in formal writing. :D
    Thanks, Cassie.
