any other number of/any number of other
When there are a lot of possible alternatives, we may say there are any number of them: “There are any number of other colors I would have preferred to this sickening lime green.”
This expression often gets scrambled into “any other number of.”
This week's entries feature selections from the revised and expanded third edition of Common Errors in English Usage—now available for pre-order on the William, James & Company Web site.
The cover price is $19, but enter the coupon code FIFTEEN to buy it for
the introductory price of $15 through the end of this year.
Read about the new edition on the Common Errors blog.
If you are not ready for a change, you can still order the second edition at the discounted price of $12 (while supplies last).
As always, both editions come with free shipping within the US.
