Other or Another?

Using “other” :

Other is an adjective which means ‘different’ or ‘the second of two items’.

  • It can be used with both, singular or plural nouns.
  • It can come after the determiners someany, and no.




  • Do you have any other books?

  • Raheem has other questions as well .
  • They have no other way out.

Using “another”

Another expresses quantity.  It means ‘additional’ or ‘one more’.
