The one is an adjective, the other one is a contraction an+other.

Another time = an other time ? the other ones will help us.

I like to explain things using examples which is another method that can be used to make the others understand things. ;)

your query on OTHER & ANOTHER

Post by Bond007 » Tue Mar 15, 2005 2:33 pm

I read some guidance and am sorry to say that whosoever has guided u is practically wrong:

OTHER means :

either, second, one of two, different, additional.
(These meanings differ when used in sentences)

ANOTHER means:

new, more, alia, extra, further.

It also refers to in three other categories linking with:
other, second, additional.

You must ensure that when the word is used, u are using it in correct sense to be conveyed and to be understood by the listener or reader.

any queries feel free to email me on ayazmomin@yahoo.com

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/results ... word=other

In fact, the words "other" and "another" have several usage, if everyone wants to distinguish their usage or meaning, please check with the above website, you should be able to find the answer. By the way, as far as i know, their meaning are generally the same.

Thank you.
