☞ As a pronoun another may have a possessive another's, pl. others, poss. pl. other'. It is much used in opposition to one; as, one went one way, another another. It is also used with one, in a reciprocal sense; as, “love one another,” that is, let each love the other or others. “These two imparadised in one another's arms.”
Webster 1828 Edition
1.Not the same; different; as, we have one form of government; France, another.
2.One more, in addition to a former number, indefinitely; as, grant one request, they will ask another favor, another and another.
3.Any other; any different person, indefinitely; as, 'Let another praise thee and not thy own mouth.' This word is often used without a noun, becoming a substitute for the name of the person or thing; as in the last example. It is also much used in opposition to one, as in the first and second passages cited. It is also frequently used with one, in a reciprocal sense; as, 'love one another;' 'bear one another's burdens;' that is, love one, or let one love another.
