    Some others ???

    Hi everyone,

    I find myself confused with this sentence Some others are different.. In this case, others is a pronoun and can it be preceeded by some?

    Could anyone help me please?

    Thanks all.

    It depends as usual on the context.

    Thank you.

    But generally, can we say a sentence using SOME + OTHERS?

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) If you will check a good dictionary, you will notice that sometimes "other" is

    a noun.

    (2) Here are two sentences from Mr. Michael Swan's popular Practical English Usage:

    I've got one lot of photos. Where are the others?

    These are too small. Have you got any others?

    (3) the, any, and some are determiners (or "adjectives" in traditional terms), and

    -- as you know -- an adjective goes in front of a noun.

    (4) Mona: I think that you are ugly.

    Tom: You're the only one who thinks that.

    Mona: Not really! Jim and Martha agree with me, too.

    Tom: Well, some others think differently. ( = Some other people think differently.

    That is, they think that I am handsome)
