Ignoring Arnold's wish, I've lost track among the technical terms,
like "nomconjob", of whether this discussion has been entirely about
"X and Y" formations, such as following "between".  Are the

"<preposition> <objective>"?

And if the answer is in the excellent MWDEU, just say so -- I'm half
way to getting it.
