Are They Both Correct?
Can 'anything' as an indefinite pronoun be used in plural form? Is 'anythings' correct in standard English? Let's find out.
Anything vs. Anythings
'Anything' is an indefinite pronoun that is used to refer to something unspecific or unknown. It can be anything at all (it doesn't matter what). It is mostly used in questions and negative sentences.
There is no such word as 'anythings' in standard English. So, if you want to use 'things' as in plural, then you need to use 'any things' (with a space between 'any' and 'thing). For example:
Any things left on the garbage will be cats' food .
'Anything left on the garbage will be cats' food', is also correct.
