Among 和 amongst 有分別嗎?


"Among" 的意思是「在...其中」。 

There is a green apple among the red apples.  (在紅蘋果中有一個青蘋果。) 

I've got that magazine among my boxes of books upstairs.  (我樓上有很多箱書;我的那本雜誌就在那些書當中。)

"Among" 的另一個寫法是 "amongst"。"Among" 和 "amongst" 並沒有分別;兩個字都是 preposition,意思和用法上都沒有區別,只是 "amongst" 比較 formal 和沒有 "among" 那麼常用。

Mother Teresa worked amongst the poor.  (德蘭修女在窮人當中工作。) 

Timothy and I are amongst the top students in Hong Kong.  (Timothy 和我是香港最優秀學生中的兩人。)

至於 "among" 和 "between" 的分別,請參考下面的 link:
