    Re: Are these sentences correct? Please help, i am using the word more/anymore.

    1) Is there some more/any_more tea in the teapot? Yes, there is some more tea in the tea pot.

    2) I want less celery in my dish but I want more of the other vegetables that come with it.

    3) I want more of these candies. OK
    Anymore as one word is only used adverbially:

    'I don't like you anymore/any more.'
