We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

dear friends,

in Russian, e.g., the conjunction "or" /ili/ is composed of the
conjunction "and" /i/ plus the particle "if/whether" /li/.  two
questions:

(1) where can i find either a diachronic or synchronic treatment that
treats /ili/ "strictly compositionally" in Slavic?

(2) what other examples are there from other languages? ie, where "or"
is a combination of "and" + "X" ? vice versa? or some other
mix-and-match?  thankx
