That’s a Whole Nother Word

Nothing spectacular, but did you know that the word "nother" is actually a word?  I was journaling tonight and started to say that something was "a whole nother matter," and it just didn't feel right (this happened a few weeks back, too).  So I looked it up on dictionary.com and found that it is a word, meaning:  "Other.  Usually used in the phrase a whole nother, as in the sentence That's a whole nother story."How about that.  Well, back to journaling.

UPDATE:  "Nother" does get spell-checked, though, so maybe my intuition was partially right, after all.
