Another/ 'nother/other

Posted by SR on October 14, 2004

A CNN reporter used 'whole 'nother story' again last night and it hurt my ears. The only explanation I could come up with was:
That is another story!
That is a whole other story!
If we mix them up and add them together we get 'a whole 'nother story!'
This "whole 'nother" has been mentioned previously, but never discussed at length. What do you think?
