Other x Others: Qual utilizar

40
Hi everyone,

I have some doubts over when I must use other (singular) or others (plural). I have read a lot of articles about, however I could not satisfy these doubts I have, then I am here asking for help. Can someone help me, please? For instance, which one must I use in these sentences below:

1) I do not need other/others people to do the job because I've already have my own team.
2) This is only one of many cars I have. In my garage, I have many other/others.
3) I need to make other/others courses in order to get specialist level.
4) I have many other/other friends beyond you.

I appreciate any help people.

People is a word with a lot of meanings.

When we talk in general about a plural noun or an uncountable noun, we should not use "The" before the noun "people". Here are some examples:

Water is an important resource. (In general-Uncountable).
Vegetables are good for you. (In general-Plural).

If we put "the" before "people", those people in the list are of a small number, specific and regular members.
Otherwise, the generalization will occur by leaving "the".

Thank so much Mr. Bernardi.
I have understood everything, less the first one sentence where you have put "(the)" before the word "other". Is it optional?
I'm gonna read the articles, thanks again.

Informação adicional:

Quando você usa "other" antes do substantivo sempre se usa no singular.

Other person = outra pessoa
The other person = a outra pessoa
Other people = outras pessoas
The other people = as outras pessoas.

Quando não estiver antes do substantivo, ele segue como singular ou plural.

Some people like it, others don't. [Algumas pessoas gostam, outras não.]

In my group of friends, I like chocolate ice cream and the others like vanilla ice cream. [No meu grupo de amigos, eu gosto de sorvete de chocolate os outros gostas de sorvete de baunilha.

In my group of friends, I like chocolate ice cream and others like vanilla ice cream. [No meu grupo de amigos, eu gosto de sorvete de chocolate outros gostas de sorvete de baunilha.

Obs. Que "the others" = "the other friends." [os outros amigos]
E "others" = "other friends" [outros amigos]

Podcast: Qual a diferença entre another, other e others?

Não seria: other= outro(a)
Another= ( + um outro (a)?

Thank You... BYE bye
