Note: As a pronoun another may have a possessive another's, pl. others, poss. pl. other'. It is much used in opposition to one; as, one went one way, another another. It is also used with one, in a reciprocal sense; as, ``love one another,'' that is, let each love the other or others. ``These two imparadised in one another's arms.'' --Milton. [1913 Webster]
