Hi

I've read somewhere "... and what about another teams?" I suppose it should rather be "other teams", however I'm not sure why "another" in this context is not all right? Maybe it would work if someone wrote "what about another teams' results?"

What about other teams' results. - Now it would be fine, wouldn't it?

Yes indeed.
NewguestI've read somewhere "... and what about another teams?" I suppose it should rather be "other teams", however I'm not sure why "another" in this context is not all right?

The reason is very simple, Newguest. The an in another is an indefinite article even though it isn't written as a separate word. That's why we say another team but other teams. After all, you wouldn't say a teams, would you?

another can be used only with singular entities while other can be used with both singular and plural entities.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you very much. It was really helpful. Emotion: wink

How about: That's why I spent another four years training in martial arts. Here "another" refers to "four years" (plural). Can I write the same with "other"?
Mr. Newguest,

Four years is referring to a particular period of time which is a singular entity. Yes, you can use it.
