A Whole ’Nother or A Completely Different
A Whole ’Nother or A Completely Different :
It is one thing to use the expression “a whole ’nother" as a consciously slangy phrase suggesting rustic charm and a completely different matter to use it mistakenly.
The A at the beginning of the phrase is the common article “a" but is here treated as if it were simultaneously the first letter of “another," interrupted by “whole."
