OTHER AND ANOTHER




Common Stumbling Blocks - Peculiar Constructions - Misused Forms.

These are words which often give to expressions a meaning far from that
intended. Thus, "I have nothing to do with that other rascal across
the street," certainly means that I am a rascal myself. "I sent the
despatch to my friend, but another villain intercepted it," clearly
signifies that my friend is a villain.

A good plan is to omit these words when they can be readily done without,
as in the above examples, but when it is necessary to use them make your
meaning clear. You can do this by making each sentence or phrase in which
they occur independent of contextual aid.
