OTHER AND ANOTHER
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.
