Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Mr. Drake, you don’t have to agree with your boss – not tonight, any road. (J. B. Priestly, “London End”)
any road = at least
Thanks for your efforts.
In this case, yes. But generally it's safer (and easier to remember because of the related words way and road) to think of it as 'anyway'; it's commonly used by northerners (and users of other non-standard dialects).
