Between or Among?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’I don’t see any difference between the two pairs of jeans.’’

“Between” and “among” have similar meanings but there are slight nuances which can cause confusion. “Between” is used to refer to two things which are clearly separated such as a departure point and destination.


Exemple : ‘’During difficult times I like to be among family.’’

“Among” is used to refer to things between which there is no clear separation such as the act of finding a lost key “among” a pile of books. The word “among” can also be used in the expression “among other things,” as a synonym of “as well as.”
