Example sentences using "Others"

Q: Please show me example sentences with 1,the others
2, others
3, an other
4, the other

A: Phrases that include “others” can talk about people or things. When you say “the others” you are talking about a separate group of things (from something already referenced). Say I have a book, and there are more somewhere else. I could say “I have one book, but I need to go get the others.” (The others being the books). The phrase “others” can be used in the same way, but is usually described when talking about people. If I wanted to say I have something other people do not, I could say “this is something others don’t have.” When saying “an other” English speakers usually group the two together, making “another.” This is probably used most often. People say this when they want (one) more of something. If I was ordering a drink from a restaurant, and wanted to order one more, I would say “Can I have another?” For the last phrase “the other” this is used in reference to one other item. Usually the two items being compared are the same type of thing. If I was shown two cars and asked which one I liked better I could say “I like this car, but I liked the other one better.” These are very common and can be used with most things, so it is more important to know when they can be used. I hope this helped!

Synonyms of "Others" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between others and another ?
A: THANK YOU! I’ve been studying it for a few years. It’s great to hear that it’s paying off haha.
Q: What is the difference between others and the others ?
A: Those two are identical.

“The” is a definite article, so whenever you’re referring to something specific, you use “the”.

The word “Other” always refers to something specific.

In English, it isn’t always required to put a “the” before an “Other”.

For example:
✅Other times, the dog barked.
✅The other times, the dog barked.

Most times, you can choose not to add the “the” if “Other” is at the beginning of the sentence or phrase

Among others’ contributions
Among others contributing

Q: What is the difference between i won't speak ill of others. and i try not to speak ill of others. ?

A: Actually, "another" is an adjective also, same as "other". When you use it alone, you're actually implying another noun afterwards. "Here, have another" = "have another (biscuit)".

Etymologically, "another" = an + other. Thus when you'd want to say "an other" you use "another", but when it's "the other" you use "other". If that makes sense.

You use "others" when there's more than one other.
