 dif·fer·ent /ˈdɪfɚ/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Dif·fer·ent a.
 1. Distinct; separate; not the same; other. “Five different churches.”
 2. Of various or contrary nature, form, or quality; partially or totally unlike; dissimilar; as, different kinds of food or drink; different states of health; different shapes; different degrees of excellence.
    Men are as different from each other, as the regions in which they are born are different.   --Dryden.
