Which to use: Between or among? Bringing reality to bear

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

Do you follow the prescribed practice of using between for comparison of two things only and among for more than two? Jackie Lee uses a corpus study to examine the actual use of these two prepositions and find out whether this prescriptive rule can be upheld in modern English.
