Anytime is the correct spelling of the adverb. It may correctly appear as two words where time is a noun and any is an adjective. We can go anytime. The house could collapse at any time.

What words have a long e sound spelled eo?

User Avatar
Two words utilizing the "eo" to represent an explicit long "e" sound are people and theory - although, depending on the speaker, the "eo" in theory may sound less like thEE-rEE and more like thEE-u-rEE. Examples of other words utilizing the "eo" where the "e" is long but the "o" acts as a second syllable include neon (nEE-AHn), rodeo (rOH-dEE-OH) and eon (EE-AHn).

You've spelled the common saying "after all" correctly in the question: it is, indeed, a two word phrase. If you were instead asking about the contemporary art publication Afterall, it would, then, be only one word.

Why do you say 'a uniform' not 'an uniform'?

User Avatar
As a general rule, "a" is used when the first sound (not letter) in a word is a consonant. "An" is used when the first sound (not letter) is a vowel. "Uniform" is pronounced /ˈjuːnɪfɔːm/ or /ˈjunəfɔrm/, the first sound being /j/, (sounds like the 'y' in the words "you" or "yes"), which is a consonant. The rule has to do with the sound of the word and not the written form of the word. If the following word has the initial sound of a consonant then "a" is used. If the initial sound of the following word is a vowel then "an" is used. This rule results in a slight difference in usage in Britain and the USA.
