What about 其?

I know that 其 is definitely more written than oral, but even so, I wonder if 其 is sometimes used by regular people in daily life other than in Chinese idioms and of course 其他.  So... can anyone give me insight into the nature of 其 in oral Chinese? 

I hope not as when I see it in texts, I have to really think carefully about it in order to understand its function.  I have noticed that not even my textbooks are willing to tackle this word.  Perhaps that is because I have never used an advanced textbook.

Anyway... any thoughts?
