PostSubject: another vs other vs others   Sun Feb 28, 2016 12:04 pm

another vs other vs others
`

another + singular noun
other + plural noun
others (a pronoun to replace other + plural noun)

•I need another drink. (drink is singular so we use another)
•I need other drinks. (drinks is plural so we use other)
•I need others. (refers to other drinks)




Two guys at McDonalds:

A: I'm still really hungry! That hamburger wasn't enough! I'm going to order ANOTHER ONE. Do you want me to get you anything? 

B: Are you really going to eat ANOTHER hamburger? you're going to make yourself sick!

(Another means "additional". 
It never has an - s. 
It never takes "the")

Now the same two guys are standing outside the cinema. 
There are only two screens in this cinema. It's small. 

A: What do you want to see? The Revenant?

B: I hate Leonardo DiCaprio. What about THE OTHER ONE, The Big Short? That's supposed to be really good. 

(The other one means "Not this one but that one". You should learn this as a set phrase.)

After the movie at the pub. Talking about their girlfriends 

A: I know you think you love her, man, but I don't think she's the right girl for you. 

B. Why not?

A. She's just not. She's boring and she weighs you down. You need to get out there and meet OTHER girls. There are plenty of fish in the sea. 

(Other + plural noun. 
No -s. 
No "the". 
Here other means "different ones")

We can also say this:

I don't like these pens. Where are THE OTHER ONES that you had yesterday?

Where are THE OTHERS? They were supposed to meet us here.



Quizás con este ejemplo se te quede mejor:
another person (otra persona)
other people (otras personas)
