How do languages express the following semantic contrast in noun phrase

   (a) 'John and Mary went to the party (together).'
   (b) 'John and Mary went to the party (separately)'

I am looking for languages that may have two different 'and'-s for
the two interpretations; or that use some alternative formal difference,
other than

   - simply adding adverbs such as 'together' and 'separately', or
   - using a comitative for one of the conjuncts in the "group"

Thanks - Edith M.
