    Can someone please explain to me the difference between 'des autres' and 'd'autres' and give examples of when they are used?

    Thank you so much


    Edit: Sorry, I think I've put this in the wrong foreign languages section. Could a mod please move it for me? Thank you!

    I can only see two cases:
    1- you speak of other people. In this case you use "d'autres" d'autres personnes sont arrivées
    2- you speak of things that belong or are related to other people. In this case you use "des autres". The "des" here is "de les", where "de" is the same possessive "de" that you could find in "la voiture de ma mère" for instance. Les pensées des autres varient

    On top of my mind. There might be other cases, I haven't looked into it.
