Awoken most certainly is a word; it comes from the old English verb "awake" and it means woken up, or made awake. The correct usage is anywhere that it could be replaced by …"woken up". 'awoken' is the passive voice form of 'awoke' (past tense of the verb 'awake'). for instance, you can say "I awoke to the sound of dogs barking" or "I was awoken by the sound of dogs barking". in modern US English, awoken is a bit archaic - normally we'd say 'awakened' instead.

The word 'an' is a variation of the indefinite article 'a' and is used when the first sound of the word following the article is that of a vowel..
Examples are: an apple, an …elephant, an infant, an orange, an uncle. etc. There may be the odd example of 'an' preceding a word beginning with the letter 'y' if 'y' is pronounced as a vowel..
Less clear is whether 'a' or 'an' should be used before a word beginning with the consonant 'h,' which is often silent. Examples are: an hour, an honest person, etc., but a half hour, a happy person..
Troublesome, sometimes, can be: a history, but (maybe) an historical novel..
There may also be examples of 'an' preceding other silent consonants. (MORE)

It's antiquated and sounds strange to English ears, but there's nothing particularly wrong with it in and of itself. It's a phrase I hear often from Indian colleagues but is… never used by the English or Australians (or, I assume, Americans). (MORE)
"Between you and her" (or her and you) is correct. The nominative "she" may never be the object of the preposition "between." "She" is used in a sentence to refer to the per…son who carries out the action . Example: "She plays the clarinet". "Her" is the direct object as in "He likes her" or the indirect object as in "Give the music to her". You would not say "Give it to she" or "He likes she". Neither would you say "between he and you" or " between we and they". The subject pronouns are: I, you, he, she, it, we, they. They can all be used to denote who or what is doing the action. The object pronouns are: me,you,him, her,it,us, them. These are the forms to use with prepositions such as "between"( remember your question?), to, for, by,with,under, over, next to and so on. Please note that the pronouns "it" and "you" can be subject pronoun AND object pronoun. (MORE)
