    Re: Asking Usage

    Each other and one another are normally used in the same way.

    We see each other/one another everyday. (= Each of us sees the other everyday.)
    They looked at each other/one another.


    Both expressions have possessive forms.
    They enjoy each otherīs/one anotherīs company.

    "One onother" is more common when more than two people are involved. However, "each other" can be used.
    The soldiers looked at one another/each other.
