Cognoscenti的中文怎么说?

我想说:Then here I was among the cognoscenti, and suddenly everyone wanted to talk about it.

Additional Details:

Cognoscenti in English means people with exceptional/a lot of knowledge about a certain subject/thing. They are not necessarily professionals or experts. They may be, as in the way I want to use it, just ordinary people who know a lot. Those in the know, so to speak.

For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)
Base language: Chinese (Mandarin)
Category: Language

    行家in chinese, as well, are not necessarily professionals or experts.
    and currently 专家in some casual situations can be ordinary people with a lot of knowledge about certain subjests (especially about sex).

    mean expert

     

    平常口语中可以说”内行人” “内行”,可以说“我是内行人”,“这方面我是内行”。“他很内行”

    “行家里手” is a little formal.

    内行,或行家。
