otro n sg
otro m (fem: otra)
- "Not again!" or "What, again?" (also Otra vez! or Otra vez?)
It is a common and potentially embarrassing mistake for students of Spanish to use un otro / una otra for the word "another": Because the Spanish language (unlike, for example, Italian, French, Catalan, and Portuguese) does not distinguish between the words "other" and "another," otro/otra without an article is correct for each. Moreover, otro/otra preceded by a definite or indefinite article refers to an extramarital, usually long-term lover; i.e., a lover "other" than one's spouse; cf. the archaic/literary English phrase "he/she love[s] another."
