Please tell me whether there is the expression "in another word" in English. Can "in another word" and "in other words" be used interchangeably? I consulted my Longman and Oxford dictionaries but I only find "in other words" in both dictionaries.
Oh, just now my mind seemed to be blocked. I now know what you meant. You meant that it has happened that others have used certain expressions which you have never heard of.
Sorry for my stupidity.

I don't think we're specifically asked to formulate any theories based on the material we read, but it's not uncommon, take my Humanities class for instance, to speculate why people did the things they did, the reason behind a particular cultural ritual...ect. with a possible explanation. But there's not a standard to have to attain to for giving your speculation. In another word, one can say all he/she wants, no matter how outrageous, it's just personal opinions, the professor usually doesn't hold you to that. But depending on what each individual professor wants, there are different focuses on what he/she wants from their students.
