[en-ee-pleys] /ˈɛn iˌpleɪs/
Origin of anyplace
1915-20; any + place
Usage note
The adverb anyplace is most often written as one word: Anyplace you look there are ruins. It occurs mainly in informal speech and only occasionally in writing. Anywhere is by far the more common form in formal speech and edited writing. The same holds true, respectively, of the adverbial pairs everyplace and everywhere; noplace and nowhere; and someplace and somewhere. The two-word noun phrases any place, every place, no place, and some place occur, however, in all contexts: We can build the house in any place we choose. There's no place like home. Unabridged
