Message 2: Conjunction Composition

Subject: Conjunction Composition

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
