comment What is the expression to describe that you are surrounded and have few ways to act?
@NVZ That's what you get for answering in a comment instead of an answer.

@BlueWhale The English is grammatically fine both ways, but they do have different meanings and it's worth understanding the difference.

This is really more of an idiom than an expression. A non-native speaker would not likely have any idea what this meant, besides figuring it out roughly from context.

comment “Each other” vs. “one another”
@SteveMelnikoff While this may be true coloquially, just because such phrases are used in practice doesn't make them "correct". I would argue that "one another" is indeed more correct in your example.

comment Single word for a very small amount of time
Technically speaking, the definition of "instant" is no time at all, so that doesn't quite fit the bill if we're being pedantic. Of course it is often used colloquially in that manner.

comment Analogy: “as if” vs. “as though”
@ArmenԾիրունյան At the very least, "as though" feels a bit more formal than "as if", but I'm curious to know if there are actually any grammatic/meaning differences between the two.
