a whole nother new word

Watching an entertaining YouTube clip about teaching cane corso puppies to eat fish, I was struck by the words of the narrator, 'a whole nother fish'. As I've posted before, I think this word nother will win the race and oust other, just as apron has ousted napron.

Parlance, I really, really hope not. And I also prefer smote.

Sally, Forth, we don't mind saying apron in stead of napron, which it used to be, so I think nother will be okay.

Parlance, I find myself saying nother quite often, it's definitely creeping into my vocabulary.

Mary, a friend said 'nother' to me on the phone the other day. She's a well-educated person who is extremely careful in her speech. (I didn't point it out to her.)
