    Usage trouble

    Can the word "Amidst" be followed by "of"? Like "Amidst of jungle" or it will simply be "Amidst the jungle". Kindly help.

    Re: Usage trouble

    Like the more commonly used amid, 'amidst' already includes a preposition in its meaning – 'in the middle of'.

    Look HERE for many examples of the word used in context.

    Please note that Amidst would have been a better title for this thread.
