    Other - The others - Another

    1) OTHER: when it is an adjective, it is placed in front of a noun, and, of course, (like all other adjectives !)it is never in the plural.

    ex: No thank you ! I don’t want this book; I’d like the other book, the red one!

    ex: In no other place than here could you express such a shocking statement! 

    - When it is an adjective, other is placed before numbers:

    ex: The first day after the operation was quite difficult,  the other two were a little less painful. 


    2) THE OTHER: is preceded by the definite article : it's a pronoun which is treated like a noun. You must put an – s in the plural. 

    -  in the singular :

    ex: The One ... The other

    ex: She has two kids: one is a dentist, the other is a surgeon.

    One... another...

    in the plural :

    ex: Some ... (the) other/s

    ex: During the party, some were talking, others were dancing. 


    3) ANOTHER: (=* AN+OTHER)=> always written in a single word (and ... never preceded by‘an’… …)

    - is often followed by an uncountable in the singular.

    ‘another +  the singular = '*an other' ...

    ex: Would you like another piece of cake? 

    Another is sometimes followed by a noun in the plural preceded by a number or by ‘few’.

    ex: I’d like to stay another few weeks…
