It’s challenging enough to address common uses of prepositions because there are so many of them, so why seek more hurdles? Because our students will come across other uses, and it may be helpful to give some exposure and practice within a supportive classroom setting.
After I published a video that explained the common uses of among and between, a viewer asked about using between with three or more people, as in dividing an inheritance between several children. Usually if one student is perplexed by a grammatical structure, chances are others feel the same way.
