    在another這個字之前,不能放the, no, any, some。

    請參見《新世紀英漢辭典》p.52 another解釋1-(2)

    所以會用不同的寫法:

    ..., but there isn't another way ....

    = ..., but there is no other way ....

    原因可能是:another是中古英文裡由an與other所構成的字。

    但other之前,可放the, some, no, any, one等字《新世紀英漢辭典》p.925 other解釋1

    This traffic jam is annoying, but there is *no other road to the city from here.

    【 another 】🈶️不定數目的 另一個/ 種/ 樣/ 項「選擇」

    另例:It is just as well that you took another road.

    還好你們走了另一條路。

    【 other 】其他的人、物 或事。後面可接 可數的 複數名詞 or 不可數名詞···( 其他的; 另外的;另一個;另一邊 )

    例:Problems always lead to other problems.

    有些問題總是連帶著另外的問題。

    該用 no other.

    你對other 及another 之字義了解不足.

    Other – 與目前不同之第二個(可為複數 - 常被翻譯為其他的).

    Another – 相同的性質 – 的第二個(常被翻譯為另外一個或另外的).

    此句中,除了現有道路(塞車的路),無第二條(不塞車的路)路,故用 no other.

    From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English

    Another:

    additional one more person or thing of the same type

    I’m going to have another cup of coffee.

    There’ll be another bus along in a few minutes.

    Other:

    the second of two used to refer to the second of two people or things, which is not the one you already have or the one you have already mentioned

    I can’t find my other shoe.

    One man was arrested, but the other one got away.
