    Is there a difference between however and anyhow. And what is their position in a sentence? At the beginning or at the end of a sentence?

    Re: anyhow

    'Anyhow' is a discourse marker, used to indicate a change in the conversation, so it isn't like 'however':

    'I'll do what you say. Anyhow, I must be going now' Here the speaker want to change the subject and uses it to signal the change. As it indicates a change, it normally comes at the beginning. 'However' can come at the beginning, middle or end of a sentence, though it is mostly found at the beginning:
    However, I didn't agree.
    I, however, didn't agree.
    I didn't agree, however.
