Apa perbedaan between dan among dan bagaimana contoh kalimatnya?

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.
