What's the difference between "midst" and "middle"?
When used as nouns, "midst" and "middle" are synonyms for one another, although they can have different nuances. "Middle" usually describes something which is at a center point while "midst" refers to a physical or metaphorical location that is in the middle of something. When used as a preposition, "midst" has the same meaning as "among", "during", or "in between". "Middle" is also often used as an adjective and "midst" is not. Ex: She is standing in the midst of the crowd. Ex: Our plane landed in the midst of the storm.
