Another valid spelling for the English word "another" is [an'[email protected]], [an'd @], or [a n'd @] (IPA phonetic alphabet). This spelling was used in some versions of The Lord of the Rings.
The correct spelling of "extra" in English is ['[email protected]], ['[email protected]], ['e k s t r @] (IPA phonetic alphabet). The 'ekstra' part comes from the Latin word meaning "outside of," and when used in reference to food this translates into "extra." Eating "extras" is common practice among those who like their meals variety-filled.
In American English, it is common to see "extra" written with a single 'e' instead of two. This is incorrect because the spelling "extra" with one 'e' means that there are more of something available or additional items sold at a store. Two 'es' mean that this is an extra edition of an item such as an encyclopedia or newspaper.
In British English, "extra" is always spelled with two 'e's'. This is consistent with other words that use this spelling, such as "exercise" and "insult".

The correct spelling of "afield" in English is [af'i: ld], [af'i: ld], [a f 'i: _l d] (IPA phonetic alphabet). It is derived from the Latin word for away, ab alto. The English language does not have an exact equivalent to the word "away," so speakers often use "afield" as a substitute.
In American English, one sometimes hears people spell this word as if it were spelled "afterfield." While "afterfield" does exist and is used in some contexts, it is not widely accepted as an accurate representation of this word.
Furthermore, using "afterfield" would be incorrect because the -ed ending was not added to this word; rather, it is a plural form. There are two ways to correctly spell this word: as a single word or as two words.
As a single word, it would be written "afield". This usage of the word is common in British English. In American English, one usually sees this spelling used in reference to sports events where they want to indicate that there will be games played away from home, such as "the team went afield in their quest for victory."
When writing about areas of land, "afield" can also be used as a noun.
