Friends! Tell me please can we use "any more" in the talking? Thanks

Here in the United States, the rule is:

 

1. It is spelled as one word when used as an adverb:

 

a. I do not eat ice cream anymore. ( = no longer)

 

2. It is spelled as two words when "any" modifies "more."

 

Mona: Would you like some more apple pie?

 

Tom: No, thank you. You gave me a very big slice. I do not want any more. (That is, I do not want any more apple pie.)
