Grice: the rhythm of threes


Grice once considered the example:

James is between Tom and Jerry.

He was wondering if 'between' should have two different SENSES here. Suppose we are talking of height.

But suppose we are talking of MORAL height.

He concludes that 'between' has only ONE sense even if the utterance can be used to mean one thing and implicate the other!
