    Default possesive - questions

    Hi, can use possesive forms also in connection with "another", "other", "the other" and "the others" and finally "others"?

    Eg.
    My another friend's gilfriend is beautiful.
    I am interested in other peoples' cars.
    The other sisters' houses were burnt off.

    and

    Dont ask me about others' presonal life, please.
    It is not mine, it is the others' problem.


    Thank you in advance

    Default Re: possesive - questions

    Hi,
    I think all those are fine except the first one. The collocation "my another" is wrong, to the best of my knowledge. It should be
    The girlfriend of another friend of mine is beautiful.
    Bye
