comment Can “anyways” be used at the beginning of a sentence?
You're right. I meant that "anyway" is better than "anyways" as it is referred to as more formal.

No. The short form is just "Yes I do" and the long form is "Yes I have ice cream" or "Yes I have some ice cream".

I think there is something wrong with the quick definition on that page. I looked at the definitions and they say "more than one syllable". Besides, "more than 3 syllables" means "minimum of 4 syllables" which is nonsense.
