    Another + plural ?

    Is is correct to use the "another" before a plural ?For example: "Could you please post another links ?"I think the "links" here is understood as a group of links ?Could you please give me some ideas ?Thank you so much !!!!!!!

    No, you can't use "another" like that. "Another" means "one other". You could say "other links" or "more links".

    Yes, but not in your example below.


    For example: "Could you please post another links?"

    Generally, when you use "another" before a plural, you need a number before the plural word.

    Initially we thought we would finish in ten hours, but we needed another ten hours before finishing.
