As a conjunction, anyhow means the same as anyway, that is, in any case:
we were late, anyway the film wasn't very good.

Anyhow as an adverb means carelessly:
he laid the table anyhow, he laid the table in a slapdash way;
she had her hat on all anyhow, her hat was not straight.

Hi LS

There once was post by lost_soul
But "Delete it" became his prime goal.
Due to this plea
I just had to see
That deletion got done of the whole. :wink:


I didn't think your post was particularly irrelevant, LS, but I deleted it anyway/anyhow (as you requested).

The words anyhow and anyway are both adverbs. The link below has some good examples for the usage of anyhow:
