限定词 other 和 another 指的是剩馀或其他的事。两者都是放在名词前，the other 则不混为一谈，因为它的用法稍有不同。
|The other||任何可以用定冠词 「the」的名词|
other 可以放在 some丶any丶no 等限定词后。
- Do you have other shoes?
- There are other jobs you could try.
- Is there any other bread?
- I have some other sugar we could use.
- We have no other ideas.
当 other 前面是限定词，而且后面接的是可数名词复数形，当语境已经很清楚名词为何物，则可直接省略不提。在这种情况下，other 会成为复数形 others。这种情形也会发生 other 单独和可数名词连用的时候，只是较不常见。
- Do you have any others?
- I know some others who might like to come.
- There are no others in this box.
- I know others like vanilla, but I prefer chocolate.
- She doesn't have to wear that dress. She has others.
another 与可数名词单数形连用。至于不可数名词，another 通常会接单数的测量词。
- Have another cookie.
- Would you like another cup of tea?
- He has another brother.
- I don't have another car.
- I'll come by another time.
使用 the other
当 the other 修饰的是可数名词复数形时，而且语境已经很清楚名词为何物，则可直接省略。在这种情况下，other 会成为复数形。
- Where is the other box of cereal?
- I work on the weekend and go to school on the other days of the week.
- May I use the other honey for my recipe?
- I enjoyed the first book but I didn't read the other books in the series.
- Have you seen the others?
- Jim ate two cookies. I ate the others.
