any more

If you want to say that something that happened in the past does not happen now, you say that it does not happen any more. Any more usually comes at the end of a clause.

There was no noise any more.
He can't hurt us any more.
I don't drive much any more.

Be Careful!
Don't say that something does not happen 'no more'. Don't say, for example, He can't hurt us no more.

Any more is sometimes spelled anymore, especially in American English. Some speakers of British English think this spelling is incorrect.

The land isn't valuable anymore.
