Here's a situation.
I brought some coats, but even if I wear all of them I'm still cold. I have others at home. I would have been much better off if I had brought 'the others'.
Here, can I call 'coats' that are at home as 'the others' in this situation? I know I can use 'others' when I need to refer to something that is not here, but when I refer to them 'again', can I use 'the' because it was mentioned before? The thing is how to tell if 'the others' is something left or something that is not here. Because we can also use 'the others' as something left, we need to tell what 'the others' refer to. It can only be deduced from the context, right?
