anymore, any more
No one goes there any more. It's too crowded.
Non ci va più nessuno. E' troppo affollato.
- Yogi Berra
✓ She doesn't play any more.
✗ She doesn't play *more*.
Non gioca/suona più.
When we say that someone did something in the past but doesn't do it now or that something was true in the past but isn't now, we can say that they don't do or that it isn't true any more.
Some more examples:
✓ I don't see Jane any more.
✗ I don't see Jane *more*.
✗ I don't see *more* Jane.
Non vedo più Jane.
✓ Nobody writes letters any more.
✗ Nobody writes letters *more*.
Nessuno scrive più le lettere.
An alternative to any more is any longer.
