  5. "another man"

"another man"

Translation:další muž

October 7, 2018



What is the difference between jiny and další? I looked up both, and both translate "another," but they are not accepted in the same sentence here. All I can think of is that one means "different" and the other "additional," but which is which?


You're on exactly the right track. Další is the one to use with the meaning of "additional" and jiný is the one to use when what you mean is "different."


What's the difference between "další" and "dalších"?


nominative and genitive case, see the Tips and notes


Why is it not ý instead of í, for I thought ý was singular masculine form and í plural masculine? And here we are referring to a single man.


Další is a "soft" adjective, ending in ; the ones that end in in the masculine singular are "hard" adjectives. They differ in the way they decline.
