What's the difference between dalsi and jiny/jina? (Sorry, typing this on my phone which doesn't have all the Czech characters)


When a person enters the room, and you expected somebody else, you say "jiný" ("a different...").

When someone enters the room, so there is one more person in it, you say "další" ("one more...").

I hope I got it right.


In another thread, someone said that další means "next". I'm utterly confused by další and jiný now. I thought jiný meant different and další meant another/additional, but apparently I'm mistaken. I'd love clarification on the difference between jiný and další.


Why? BobShmop basically confirmed what you thought. Why do you think you are mistaken?
