"amid/amidst" and "among/amongst"
I'm trying to figure out the difference between "amid/amidst" and "among/amongst" in contemporary English.
I've already googled for half an hour, but they all give me different answers:/
It would be nice if someone could explain this for me, or provide me with a link to a website that explains it right. Thanks!I read that amid/amidst is used for uncountable and among/amongst is countable. There may be exceptions, but can I use this as a rule of thumb?
