    another/other differences

    Hello, I have this sentence;

    "I have another hobbies" And I wonder what is the difference in saying "I have another hobbies" and "I have other hobbies".

    I mean I want to know if there is a difference in meaning if I use other instead of another.

    Thanks a lot.

    "Another" means "one other" so it should be followed by a singular noun. If you say "I have other..." it implies more than one so it takes a plural.
