yonder (2)

My father once asked me if I knew where yonder was. I said I thought yonder was another word for there. He smiled and said, "No, yonder is between here and there." This little story has stayed with me for years as an example of linguistic magic: It identified a new space-a middle region that was neither here nor there-a place that simply didn't exist for me until it was given a name.
