    look between

    Hi

    If one person looks between (for example) John and Tom, does it mean this person looks sometimes at John and sometimes at Tom, or looks in the space between these two people?

    Re: look between

    He looks at the space between them.

    If he looks from one to the other, you say 'He looked from John to Tom. . .then back again to John'.

    Re: look between

    You can use 'between' to describe repetitive actions but not quite in the way you've described:
    "I divided my attention between Tom and John", for example.
