Journal Chacham's Journal: Verbiage: "Nother" actually is a recognized word. 6

So nother actually is a word.

/me cries

Gone is the pleasure of laughing at people making the egregious mistake of not realizing that the word "another" is a concatenation of "an" and "other", with the "n" being there because the "o" at the beginning of other, and that when adding a word in between that begins with a consonant the "n" should quietly be dropped like people who have run on sentences, especially when they have the audacity to refer to it in that very sentence and make fun of it, making it hard to read.
