amongst is a bit rubbish. if you really must use it then maybe restrict it to preceding the word 'a' [or, at a pinch, any word starting with a vowel], e.g. 'among a crowd of people' can sound a bit like 'a monger crowd of people', not always ideal so maybe use amongst instead? but, seriously, don't bother.

Isn't it also a PLU thing, as in how one pronounces scone or what one eats of an evening? What would Jacob Rees-Mogg say?

No difference.
Amongst is not normally used by Americans.

Little known fact: amongst is an abbreviation of "amongest".

So clearly he is amongst.

It’s a fuckin minefield, sure enough. I agree with you TFP in that it’s a bit rubbish, but I fink it might work in the context.
Thank you for your sage advice brothers.

The simple pleasure of coming across a lovely word you'd not heard of before:

Thalweg: a line connecting the lowest points of successive cross-sections along the course of a valley or river.

'Weaponised' had become the latest buzzword on talk radio and in the press. Every cunt is starting to sling it into whatever they're talking about. It hasn't reached 'So... ' frequency yet, but it's on the way up.
Fucking weaponised. Cunts.

In our area we get the adjective "disruptive" a little bit, referring to small companies, tech or groups that shake shit up. Taken to using it about individuals instead, it's lots of fun watching them take offence about what was a compliment moments earlier :lol:
