Here are the sentences:

There’s no other words for it.

There’s no another word for it.

There’s no other word for it.

I think the first sentence is right, the second is less preferred, and the third is wrong because “other” needs plural nouns.

Am I right?

The correct form of your first sentence is:

There are no other words for it.

We use "other" before plural countable nouns and all uncountable nouns.

We use "another" before singular countable nouns.

In your second sentence, "no" and "another" are mutually exclusive determiners and we can't use both of them in front of the same noun.

Your third sentence is also fine. Yes, when you use "other" in a non-negative and non-pre-quantified structure, you should use a plural noun after "other" (so it's not correct to say "there is other word"), but there is nothing wrong with "one other word" or "no other word".

Let me summarize your phrases and also add some more variations.

In the negative:

✔ There are no other words for it.
✔ There are not other words for it.
✔ There is no other word for it.
✘ There is not other word for it.

✘ There are no another words for it.
✘ There are not another words for it.
✘ There is no another word for it.
✔ There is not another word for it.

You can use other with both singular and plural nouns after no, and you can use other with plural nouns after not.

You can only use another with singular nouns after not.


In the positive:

✔ There are other words for it.
✘ There is other word for it.

✘ There are another words for it.
✔ There is another word for it.

You can only use other with plural nouns, and you can only use another with singular nouns.

In the first option, the plural form of "word" should not be used since you are using "there's". The correct sentence with plural form would be : There are no other words for it. (This implies that there are no other words apart from two or more words.)

The second option is grammatically incorrect. "Another" cannot be used here.

The third option is correct. (This implies that there are no other words apart from a single word.)
