Among and Amid. I had been wondering how this two words can be used in contexts. Finally I found out that these two words aren’t actually synonymous.
Among should be used when it’s followed by countable nouns or group of people or things.
- The serial killer is walking among the crowd in Beverly Hills.
- John is an outstanding student. He’s the brightest one among the other students.
Amid is used when it’s followed by uncountable nouns.
- Greg quit his job amid the succession euphoria in his company.
