来自短语on mong. 词根mong, 中间，同mingle, 混在一起。
- among: [OE] Gemong was an Old English word for ‘crowd’ – ge- was a collective prefix, signifying ‘together’, and -mong is related to mingle – and so the phrase on gemonge meant ‘in a crowd’, hence ‘in the midst, surrounded’. By the 12th century, the ge- element had dropped out, giving onmong and eventually among. A parallel bimong existed in the 13th century.
- among (prep.)
- early 12c., from Old English onmang, from phrase on gemang "in a crowd," from gemengan "to mingle" (see mingle). Collective prefix ge- dropped 12c. leaving onmong, amang, among. Compare Old Saxon angimang "among, amid;" Old Frisian mong "among."
