In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Each Other – One Another
Today’s request comes from Mohamed Farouk in Cairo, Egypt. He asks, I believe there’s a difference between each other and one another. When I looked them up in an advanced learner’s dictionary there was no difference. Could you please help us know the rule here? So I did a little bit of research with the Google Ngram Viewer and the British National Corpus. Both agreed with each other and told me what I had suspected: each other is much more commonly used than one another.
