I have two questions here:

  1. Can 'in another word' mean 'in other words'? I see the example in the dictionary on my cellphone:

In another word, Jesus got the abandon that we deserved.

  1. Is 'not another word' a phrase? I guess it means 'not saying another word' or 'don't say this any more'. Have I got it right?

Here is another example: enter image description here

  • It's an app installed on my phone. It might not be a good one. I also updated with another example.

Nope In another word is a wrong phrase for such case. Common and correct is in other words.

As for not another word - I think it's correct and could mean say no more or have literal meaning based on context e.g. zebra is not another word for horse
