    no other and no

    Hi ,teachers:
    Could you please tell me what the difference between :No other student and no student to native speakers.
    I saw it in some grammar books say no other noun ----and I can't grasp the difference

    1 No other student is taller than Paul.
    2 No student is taller than Paul.

    Could you clarify it for me?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    note that i changed the sentence order to deal with the simpler sentence first.

    2 no student is taller than paul. there aren't any students taller than paul.

    1 no other student is taller than paul. imagine that there is one student taller than paul. Then you could say, '(except for john,) no other student is taller than paul.'
