Complete Definition of "every other"

English
Adjective
every other

<!-- unlikely to be an indefinite article - only "a" and "an" have that name; probably an adjective -- User:Paul G|Paul G 09:40, 14 Apr 2004 (UTC) -->

  1. All except for some previously mentioned set.

#: Two of the bolts were loose, but every other bolt I checked was fine.

  1. Every second; each alternate; the second of each pair in turn (perhaps used because "every second" could also refer to "second" as a unit of time or be interpreted as meaning "only the second"). <!--"Every second" is correct, however - I have given this as a synonym -- User:Paul G|Paul G 09:40, 14 Apr 2004 (UTC) -->
