Undecided questions
In some situations 'another' means the same as 'the other'?

I've found this sentence, which I have changed a little. 'Yesterday I was watching two dinosaurs.One was running around a palm tree, another (one) was eating a bone." Shouldn't be 'the other' instead of 'another'?

    Yes, it should. :)

    When you say 'another' one you emphasize that there are many dinosaurs. When you say 'the other one' you emphasize the other dinosaur as a different and unique being. :)
