Esperanto[edit]

Etymology[edit]

An unofficial extension of the correlatives, based on the adjective alia (other).

Prefix[edit]

ali-

  1. (neologism) other-, else- (correlative prefix)

Derived terms[edit]

  • aliu another one (plural: others), (an)other (with a noun)
  • alies another's, others', someone else's
  • aliel in another way, otherwise
  • aliam at another time
  • aliom another amount
  • alial for another reason

The expected forms *alia (another kind of) and *alie (elsewhere) are not used, as they already exist with the meanings alia ‎(other) and alie ‎(otherwise). The compounds alispeca ‎(another kind of) and aliloke ‎(another place) may be used instead. Alio ‎(another) (without a noun) (plural: others) is not derived as a correlative, being the nominal form of the adjective, but is synonymous with the expected correlative.
