I want to make sure that I'm using amid and among properly. As I understand it, amid is for uncountable nouns, and among is for countable nouns.
My sentence was originally:
The three enjoyed their drinks for a moment amid the sounds of the crowd.
I believe sounds in this context is countable. Is this correct?
If so, I think there are two ways to fix my error.
1) Change the sentence to use an uncountable noun: sound.
The three enjoyed their drinks for a moment amid the sound of the crowd.
2) Change the preposition to be the proper one for a countable noun: among.
The three enjoyed their drinks for a moment among the sounds of the crowd.
Are these last two variations correct in their preposition/noun agreement?
