Between vs Among | Ask Linda! | English Grammar
In this video Linda takes a look at the difference between “among” and “between”. “Between” is used when we want to refer to two or more things that are distinct. “Choose between the red and the green socks” in this example we use “between” because the socks are clearly separate. We use “among” when we refer to things that are part of a group or mass. “Choose among all your socks” here we use “among” because we are talking about all the socks.
