Student or Learner
Wouls you be kind enough to explain to me the following strange metamorphose of the “else”?
Was there anything else wrong?
I’ll try somewhere else.
There’s nothing else you can do.
Where else did you go?
What else did you buy?
I didn’t buy much else.
I’ll borrow someone else’s car. (a car belonging to some other person)
Hurry up, or else we’ll be late for check-in.
Exchange the tap or else fit it properly.
This is a quite different use; "else" here has the meaning "if not".
Thank you for your efforts.
