Example sentences using "Anyway"

Q: Please show me example sentences with anyway.
A: The word "anyway" is often used to further confirm a statement. For example, in the sentence:

You are saying that your plan of going to the movies will not be changed, no matter the situation.

"Anyway" can also be used to continue a story that was interrupted, for example in the conversation:

Him: "Oh no! That's terrible! Anyway, back to my story about the library yesterday.."

Remember to not confuse "anyway" with "any way", which means to do something through any method or manner.

Q: What is the difference between anyway and anyways ?
A: "Anyway" is always correct. "Anyways" is incorrect slang.
Q: What is the difference between anyway and anyways ?
A: Not really a difference in meaning, but "anyways" is always colloquial (and possibly more common in some regions than others). "Anyway" is the correct dictionary form, and it can be informal, formal and anything in between.

"Anyways" can have a friendly, folksy feeling to it. Or it can sound like "lazy" English, the way teenagers speak slightly incorrectly. It depends on how the listener judges it. I personally like it, but it might sound sloppy at a job interview.
Q: What is the difference between anyway and somehow ?
A: They are both very similar and can often be used interchangeably! "Make it anyway" means regardless of the situation, you still need to make it. "Make it somehow" also means regardless of the situation, you need to make it, with whatever resources you have available.
