Next week we are playing with other school.

Is the above correct? Can we use this adjective with singular complements? If not, what is the correct alternative?

Cheers!

You have to sat 'the other'
" . . . with another school." also works.

But then the object has to be previously specified, right? If this school is unknown to both the speaker and the listener, we cannot use 'the other'. Am I right?

Yes, say another as Avangi mentioned. Unfortunately you can't say an other as two words.

Avangi, Ivanhr, and nona the brit,

Thanks!

Hi,

You can also say some other meaning "another".
Hi Michal,
There's a subtle difference between "another" and "some other."

With "another," I do know which "other thing" I mean, but for whatever reason, it's not important enough to include in the conversation.

Last night we played a school with a good team, and next week we play another school who has an even better team. -- I know the team we're playing next week, but it's not important to say the name. Maybe it won't have meaning to the listener.

With "some other," I don't know much about that "other thing." I only know it exists and it's not the same as the one we've just been talking about. It may not have even been determined yet.
Hi GG,

Thanks! Emotion: smile I didn't know that "another" says that we know the "thing" we're talking about. I thought they are the same as they both indicate that there are more than two "things", as opposed to "the other", which says there's only 2.
