*latlh Dochmey
*/other (additional) things
another's things
others' things/ (because plural suffixes are optional)

*latlhmey Doch
*/others' thing(s)/

I wouldn't use *latlhmey* *X* to mean /additional Xs. /Explicitly using 
the plural suffix seems to lock it into the "someone else" meaning, 
though I can't say exactly why.
