Say ‘among’ with ‘dāng zhōng’ in Chinese

当中 (dāng zhōng) means "among", or more literally "in the middle of". In English this is a bit like "of", where you would say, "of all of my friends, you are the most loyal." Also, 当中 can be used to express being in the middle of an activity or process.

“当中”的意思是“among”,更直接点就是“在…之中”。这有点像英语里的“of”,你可以用它表达“of all of my friends, you are the most loyal (你是我所有的朋友当中最忠实的)”。另外,“当中”也可以用于表达一项活动或进程的中途。

Group + 当中/Process + 当中

Examples

nǐ shì wǒ suǒ yǒu péng yǒu dāng zhōng zuì cōng míng de yī gè.

你是我所有朋友当中最聪明的一个。

Of all of my friends, you are the smartest one.

zài zhè yì bǎi gè xuǎn shǒu dāng zhōng wǒ biǎo xiàn de zuì chū sè.

在这一百个选手当中我表现得最出色。

Among these one hundred participants, my performance was the most outstanding.

zhè gè gōng chéng hái zài jì huà dāng zhōng.

这个工程还在计划当中。

This engineering project is still in the planning stage.

When used to express "among", 当中 is a little like 其中. However, 其中 means something more like "among the aforementioned", whereas 当中 simply means "among." Furthermore, 其中 cannot be used in relation to processes.

当用于表达“among”时,“当中”有点类似“其中”。不过,“其中”倾向于表示“前面提及的事情之中”,而“当中”只是表示“among”的意思。此外,“其中”不能用在关于进程的情况。
