Among vs Amongst 💬💬💬

Have you ever wondered what the difference between among and amongst? Some people say among, while others prefer saying amongst. So, what is the difference between these two words?❓❓❓

According to Dictionary.com, among and amongst are variations of the same word. Among is more common in American English 🇺🇸, while amongst is used almost exclusively in British English 🇬🇧.

Amongst may feel more archaic to speakers of American English, but among is actually the older word, dating back to Old English (circa 1000 CE). Amongst, in comparison, showed up in the language in Middle English (circa 1200 CE). 📜📜📜

Among and amongst are synonyms, sharing the same meaning. Both are propositions that refer to being surrounded by or in the middle of something that serves as the object of the preposition.

Among and amongst are both acceptable and grammatically correct. ✅✅✅

In both speech and writing, among and amongst are interchangeable. Both are grammatically correct and mean the same thing. However, amongst is often considered old-fashioned or pretentious in American English, so you may want to avoid it. The choice between them is largely a matter of stylistic preference. 😀😀😀

Examples of sentences using among and amongst:

Among: “The bees were buzzing among the flowers.”

Amongst: “Amongst the commotion, the police tried to stop the chaos happening around them.”
