Usage notes[edit]

Unlike its other Romance cognates, this word may be considered by some to be less personal than prieten, falling somewhere between "friend" and "acquaintance". Prieten should be used for a closer friend, while amic can be used for someone you are friendly with, but do not know particularly well.
