    other, another

    His sister's other child ... (1)
    His sister's another child ... (2)

    Does it mean that in (1) his sister has 2 children, and in (2) - more than 2 children?

    Does it mean that in (1) his sister has 2 children, and in (2) - more than 2 children? Apart from the construction, yes, that is what each means.
