Ubhaya - Two translation questions from one quote

  1. Was the word “ubhaya” translated to “between the two”?
  2. Could the Pali have been translated to the following and, if not, why?

The compound you are asking about consists of two parts,
ubhayam + antara. both + in between.

So put together it’s ‘in between both’ or ‘in between the two’, or possibly ‘nor in between either’.

(With the instrumental case in a somewhat adverbial sense)
