In this post, we compare two pronouns: 另外 and 其他.
1. Both 另外 and 其他 can be used directly before a noun. This noun can be omitted. The difference is that we have to use 的 after 另外. After 其他, 的 is not a necessity.
2. When used before a a measure word-numeral phrase, 的 can be omitted for 另外 too. Both 另外 and 其他 can be followed by such a phrase, but an exception exists — 其他 cannot be used before number 1, 一.
