    Hi
    basically
    another relates to 1/singular
    other relates to more then 1/plural
    examples
    another person (singular)
    other people (plural)
    thanks and greetings from Ireland

    "Other can be an adjective or a noun. "Others" is the plural of "other" when it's a noun.

    Whenever "an other" is written, it's written as one word (regardless of whether it's an adjective or a noun).
    For example, "an other person" is written as "another person". There's no reason for this, except that it's convention.

    another = singular
    others = plural
