Another or Other?
What’s the difference between these two words and when do we use each? I often notice that students confuse these two words especially since the words, when translated into Spanish, mean the same. Here is a simple rule to help you remember the difference between the two words.
another + singular noun
other + plural noun
others (a pronoun to replace other + plural noun)
- I need another cup. (cup is singular so we use another)
- I need other cups. (cup is plural so we use other)
- I need others. (refers to other cups)
