    others

    May I clarify one more time between others, other and another as I have posted a similiar thread before?


    1. Even though Tom loves May, Tom is still dating with others (more than one woman)

    2. Even though Tom loves May, Tom is still dating with another woman (one woman only)

    3. Even though Tom loves May, Tom is still dating with other women (more than one woman)
    __________________________________________________ ________


    a. others (more than one woman)

    b. another woman (one woman only)

    c. other women (more than one woman)


    Are my understanding of the above correct?
    __________________________________________________ _________

    d. apple, pear

    e. Besides apple, I still have another choice which is pear.

    e. apple, pear, melon

    Besides apple, I still have other choices which are pear and melon.

    f. apple, pear, melon

    Besides apple, I still have others choices of fruits to choose.


    Are my understanding of the above correct?

    Re: others

    For the first three, your understanding is correct. I would not use "with" however. You don't date "with."

    "He is dating others."
    "He is dating another woman."

    Your final sentence about fruits is not correct. You don't say "others choices." You would say "other choices."

    Re: others

    For simplicity, please ask questions on separate topics in separate threads.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
