We can use “else” after indefinite pronouns and indefinite adverbs of position to refer to another person, place, or thing except the one(s) you are talking about.

We can also use “else” with most of the question words to refer to people, things, places etc. except the one(s) you are talking about.

Sounds OK, although I always hesitate about such broad and theoretical statements.
