Betwixt, Between and Beyond!

Bruce, a listener from NYC, writes…

“My sense of betwixt is that not only does it refer to a physical location, but a very specific one. You wouldn’t say ‘somewhere betwixt the coasts,’ unless you were a true coastal elitist. The thing betwixt other things is probably touching both and maybe wedged in between. The irony of ‘betwixt the cup and the lip’ is that the location is specific to the point of vanishing, like the field of knowledge of a PhD dissertation.”
