    in another word(s) ?

    when we wanna say that there is another way to express the same meaning,
    we usually would say "in another word(s)"

    but I am not sure, in this phrase, should it be word or words?

    word vs. words ---> which one is correct?

    codenamecharlie,

    When we want to say there is another way to express the same meaning, we usually say 'in other words'.
