    Smile "another a second or two"

    When I asked the meaning of "after a second or two",the teachers in this website taught me it means" after a while".
    Now I found the phrase "another a second or two",is it the same meaning as "after a second or two"?

    No. As it stands, it is not acceptable English.

    It could be fine - in context.

    Yuyu, after the information you received in the previous thread, and the clarification in this thread, you should be able to work that out for yourself.
