I was a little surprised when I discovered that I had apparently never written anything on this blog that I should use between or between me when I read the parties to a contract, in the introductory clause or elsewhere. Here is what MSCD 2.46-48 has to say: it is generally accepted that, while we are talking about a contract between two parties, the correct preposition for use in the case of a contract involving more than two parties is below them. But according to The Oxford English Dictionary, it is not only allowed, but actually better to use between more than two parts. The fact that the unnecessary distinction between and between is generally accepted is a good indication of the state of the traditional contractual language. If you think that between versus between you is a rewarding use of each other`s time, it is urgent to reintegrate. Please introduce yourself to 14 Five Bells Lane, Nether Wallop, Hampshire, England, with a sheet metal hat on your head, ring the doorbell and say, “I`m here to learn something about active drawing.” In any case, use between as a preposition in the introductory sentence and not below or a stupid verse (see 1.42), z.B. by and between. In other words, if you use between or between, has no influence on meaning or readability, so it would not be useful to make it a problem. Use between in your drawings. If a traditionalist insists because there are more than two parties, approval of this change would be a painless concession. If the other page presents you with a design that uses under, asking for it to be changed in between, would probably upset them.
