EtymologyEdit

An unofficial extension of the correlatives, based on the adjective alia (other).

PrefixEdit

ali-

  1. (neologism) other-, else- (correlative prefix)

Derived termsEdit

  • aliu another one (plural: others), (an)other (with a noun)
  • alies another's, others', someone else's
  • aliel in another way, otherwise
  • aliam at another time
  • aliom another amount
  • alial for another reason

The expected forms *alia (another kind of) and *alie (elsewhere) are not used, as they already exist with the meanings alia (other) and alie (otherwise). The compounds alispeca (another kind of) and aliloke (another place) may be used instead. Alio (another) (without a noun) (plural: others) is not derived as a correlative, being the nominal form of the adjective, but is synonymous with the expected correlative.
