How do you say it guys? Hello everyone, let me ask you for some advice. In English language there is a phrase on the one hand/on the other hand. BUT!!! 1) Can you say on the one side/ on the other side instead? 2) Is it even possible to say on the one hand side/ on the other hand side?

Neither of those are expressions a native speaker would use, though you would be understood if you used them.

Hi Miroslav, With regards to 'On the one side.....'. It certainly isn't flagrantly wrong, but I would say 'On the one hand....' is much more common and therefore preferable. 'On the one hand side', on the other hand, is definitely wrong (excuse the pun). Hope this helps! Matt
