AHD has amongst as variant of among. RHD defines amongst as a chiefly
Brit. variant of among. WND defines it as "same as among." And etc. So
what's the/your problem?
My problem was with rigid, pedantic English teachers of the past who didn't
for the continuous evolution of the English language, language in use
and the wonderful and serious scholarship of the participants of ADS and
was a sarcastic dig at them, a resentment for them having subconsciously
a false standard within my psyche, and a thanks to them for allowing me to
recognize the difference. It was meant to elicit the response it did
but not meant as a personal attack.
