    other money

    Collins Cobuild Usage:
    Other money comes direct from industry.

    Can we use 'other' before a noncount noun like 'money'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: other money

    Other means 'not this but that'.

    not this money, but that money; other money

    Yes, but you can't say 'another money.'

    It's probably best, if you want to agree or disagree with something, to quote the post you agree or disagree with. Otherwise your response can be read to follow on from the one above it.

    Agreed. (And it is best to be more circumspect too. )
