else    : ['ɛls]
Else \Else\, adv. & conj.
1. Besides; except that mentioned; in addition; as, nowhere
else; no one else.
[1913 Webster]

2. Otherwise; in the other, or the contrary, case; if the
facts were different.
[1913 Webster]

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give
it. --Ps. li. 16.
[1913 Webster]

Note: After `or', else is sometimes used expletively, as
simply noting an alternative. "Will you give thanks, .
. . or else shall I?" --Shak.
[1913 Webster]


Else \Else\, a. & pron. [OE. & AS. elles otherwise, gen. sing.
of an adj. signifying other; akin to OHG. elles otherwise,
OSw. [aum]ljes, Sw. eljest, Goth. aljis, adj., other, L.
alius, Gr. ?. Cf. {Alias}, {Alien}.]
Other; one or something beside; as, Who else is coming? What
else shall I give? Do you expect anything else? "Bastards and
else." --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Note: This word always follows its noun. It is usual to give
the possessive form to else rather than to the
substantive; as, somebody else's; no one else's. "A boy
who is fond of somebody else's pencil case." --G.
Eliot. "A suit of clothes like everybody else's."
--Thackeray.
[1913 Webster]
