    Exclamation Can we use the as an article before word another ?

    Hello All Experts,
    In biritsh english I have seen many times people often use “the” before “another” but recently came across comment saying “the” should not be used before “another”.

    Example like - I have “the another” ball in my basket.

    Can experts guide on this ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's incorrect to put 'the' before 'another'. No exceptions.

    Thanks in advance. Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you.
    Welcome to the forum.

    You have received a clear answer from Rover but please note my corrections to your post above. It is important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns (British, English, Microsoft, Shakespeare).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    You can thank people for helpful answers by clicking the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of a response.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
