Usage notes

  • As a fused head construction another may have a possessive another's (plural: others, or possessive plural other). It is much used in opposition to one; as, one went one way, another went another. It is also used with one in a reciprocal sense; as, "love one another," that is, let each love the other or others.

  • Another is usually used with a singular noun, but constructions such as "another five days", "another twenty miles", "another few people", "another fifty dollars" are valid too.
  • Sometimes, the word whole is inserted into another by the common process of tmesis, giving: "a whole nother." This is a colloquialism that some recommend avoiding in formal writing. The prescribed alternatives are "a whole other" or "another whole".
  • There may be ambiguity: "another" may or may not imply "replacement", e.g. "I need another chair." may mean "My chair needs to be replaced." or "I need an additional chair [and I need to keep my existing chair]."
