In correct English it should readseo151 said:Let's write one another. Or is it 'write one an other'? Is that the proper usage in this particular example?
Are you a male, a female, or an "other"?
Today I am told that this usage is incorrect: since another means "an other", the above sentence would make no sense.Another 15 servicemen were killed today.
My opinion on this is that this would only be correct had the previous group of servicemen that were killed numbered 15, since you are saying, "a second group of 15 were killed." But if the question of whether to use "another" or "an other" still stands, then I would say this is correct. Regarding the correctiveness of this statement in general, I would prefer "15 more servicemen were killed today."Another 15 servicemen were killed today.
I realize I could just as easily say:President Bush wants to send another 18,000 troops to Iraq.
But is the first version correct English, poor English, or something in dispute?President Bush wants to send 18,000 more troops to Iraq.
One more, one further; originally a second of two things; subsequently extended to anything additional or remaining beyond those already considered; an additional.
