Qs: 'Only If'

Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.org>

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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: 'Only If'

Larry Horn and I would like to know whether there is a language which has a
single lexical item for reverse implication. It should translate 'only if' for
example in (1):

(1) Only if the cat is very hungry will it eat cabbage

Please send suggestions to laurence.hornyale.edu and/or annabelling.ucl.ac.uk.
