Between dan among memiliki arti di antara. Kita menggunakan between manakala sesuatu berada di antara dua atau lebih benda, orang, negara, dan lain sebagainya dimana kita melihat benda-benda/orang-orang di sekitarnya tersebut secara terpisah dan satu dengan lainnya berbeda. Kita menggunakan among manakala sesuatu berada di antara kerumunan, kelompok, atau kumpulan benda/orang dimana kita melihat benda-benda/orang-orang di sekitarnya tersebut tidak secara terpisah.

Contoh kalimat:

  • She was sitting between Prabu and Ratu.
  • I saw something lying between the wheels of the train.
  • Indonesia lies between Malaysia, Philippines, Australia, and Timor Lorosae.
  • She was standing laughing among a crowd of journalists.
  • We found a little house hidden among the trees.

Between lebih lazim dipergunakan manakala kita ingin mengatakan bahwa terdapat benda-benda, atau kelompok benda di kedua sisi hal/barang yang dimaksud.

  • A little valley between high mountains.

Kata divide (membagi) dan share (berbagi) lazimnya diikuti between manakala kita menggunakan benda tunggal (singular noun); sementara untuk benda jamak (plural noun) kita dapat menggunakan baik between maupun among.

  • He shared his property between his wife, his doughther, and his sister.
  • I divide my time between teaching, writing, and lecturing.
  • He divided his money between/among his five sons.

Jika kita ingin menunjukkan perbedaan di antara satu dengan lainnya, kita menggunakan between.

  • What is the difference between a crow and a rook?

Among, selain mengandung arti di antara, dapat pula bermakna satu dari (one of), sebagian dari (some of), dan termasuk (included in).

  • Among the first to arrive was the Fantasian ambassador.
  • He has a number of criminals among his friends.
