BETWEEN * In the position or interval that separates (two things), or intermediate in quantity or degree. (See the Usage notes below.) _John stood BETWEEN Amy and Mary.  Let's meet BETWEEN two and three._ _I want to buy one that costs somewhere BETWEEN forty and fifty dollars._ * 1893, Walter Besant, _The Ivory Gate_, Prologue: Thus, when he drew up instructions in lawyer language, he expressed the important words by an initial, a medial, or a final consonant, and made scratches for all the words BETWEEN; his clerks, however, understood him very well. * Done together or reciprocally. _conversation BETWEEN friends_ * Shared in confidence. _BETWEEN you and me, I think the boss is crazy.  Let's keep this BETWEEN ourselves._ * In transit from (one to the other, or connecting places). _He's BETWEEN jobs right now.  The shuttle runs BETWEEN the town and the airport._ * Combined (by effort or ownership). _BETWEEN us all, we shall succeed.  We've only got £5 BETWEEN us._ _BETWEEN the leaky taps and the peeling wallpaper, there isn't much about this house to appeal to a buyer._ * One of (representing a choice). _You must choose BETWEEN him and me._ _Some colour-blind people can't distinguish BETWEEN red and green._ USAGE NOTES * Some groups of non-native speakers confuse _between_ and _among_. It is sometimes said that _between_ usually applies to two things, while _among_ applies to more than two things. This is not correct; according to the Oxford English Dictionary (quoted at http://eebweb.arizona.edu/faculty/chesson/between_and_among.htm) "In all senses, _between_ has been, from its earliest appearance, extended to more than two. In OE. and ME. it was so extended in sense 1, in which _among_ is now considered better. It is still the only word available to express the relation of a thing to many surrounding things severally and individually, _among_ expressing a relation to them collectively and vaguely: we should not say ‘the space lying among the three points,’ or ‘a treaty among three powers,’ or ‘the choice lies among the three candidates in the select list,’ or ‘to insert a needle among the closed petals of a flower".
