If we look at the amongst meaning: it is similar to among: as this word also refers to “in-between “or “in the middle of”. Most people like to use among rather than amongst as it sounds old-fashioned, but amongst was discovered after among and is also commonly used in British English. This word is not very common in American English. Some sounds were added to the word during the Middle English Period to identify the adverbs. Among was also one of those words which became an adverb.
