  • Is there anything else you need from the store?
  • Do you need anything else?
  • Is there anyone else who would like to order a pizza?
  • He has nothing else to say.
  • Get someone else to do that. I'm busy.
  • What else do you think about this book?
  • Where else would you like to go if we don't go to a movie?

The word "else" is often used when a situation might have a negative result:

  • He'd better be on time or else.
  • She has to get her grades up, or else she won't graduate.
