Is there any word in English, or indeed in some foreign tongue, that means there and then? A single point in space and time.
A friend asked me this in the pub on Friday. During the intense and meticulous planning process that precedes all my excursions into the outside world, I had sent a text saying "The Flask at nine?" And he had started to reply "See you..." and then tried to think of a single word that would mean there and then.
Eventually he gave up and wrote "there and then" which I concede is not much of a sacrifice, but the problem bothers me. It niggles.
I was thinking that perhaps there was a word in theoretical physics or Basque.
