Topic: A question for Matt

Anonymous A started this discussion 2 months ago #73,031

Which is correct?

"Among other things" or "Amongst other things"?

Amongst appeared in the english lexicon much later than Among. If you wish to speak proper modern english, use Amongst.

I'm not Matt by the way.

Why would the age of the word make a difference?

Both are acceptable. Amongst is older.

If you can't even manage simple English, why do you think you'd make a good English teacher?
