The Understanding Of Similar Terms While Using Or Speaking English
A word in the English language can sound identical to another word. Still, the overall meaning is distinct from one word to another. The usage of words like another, other or the other is further. This is another sentence example (ตัวอย่างการใช้ Another, which is the term in Thai), which explains how the meanings of the words are the same but mean different.
We often use another, other or the other in our day-to-day lives. Let us get deep into the understanding and understand each word individually with examples.
Another: The meaning is ‘One more, a singular pronoun
Another sentence example to better understand the context is “I would love to take another cupcake” or “Let’s go to another park tomorrow.”
Here, the context is apparent. When the person asks for one more is made very clear with the examples.
Other: The meaning is ‘Else/another (the rest)’, but it doesn’t specify which one is an adjective before a noun.
Here are sentence examples for others to understand. – “They like to go with other people” or “the other coffee is on the counter still!”
Also, in some contexts, the other side/end is understood as the opposite side.
For instance: The tall woman was waiting for her friends on the other side of the road.
The Other: The meaning is referred to as “else/another”
As an example of ‘the other,’ consider this sentence: “This shade of yellow doesn’t suit you, let’s try the other shade instead” or “Where is the other set of keys?” I cannot find them.”
The Others: It is a pronoun explicitly used for singular use, not plural.
For instance “I will wait until the others sleep peacefully” or another sentence example is “Are the others from the school coming along”?
Looking at these variations in the examples mentioned earlier makes it easier to understand the difference and cope with the various uses of similar words in contrast and similar contexts.
