THANKS FOR THE RESPONSES TO THIS QUERY. AS A NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOTED, SOME
OF MY EXAMPLES WERE MISTAKEN IN THAT THEY WEREN'T ACTUALLY DERIVED FROM
THE DIFFERENT ORIGINS THAT I WAS SEEKING IN THESE PAIRS.

THIS POINNTS TO THE LARGER QUESTION OF WHETHER THESE REDUNDANCIES ARE A
SPECIAL CASE OF BI-LINGUALLY-ROOTED PAIRINGS OR MERELY A SUBSET OF
REDUNDANT PAIRS (PRESENT, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE HEBREW BIBLE, OLD ENGLISH
LAWS, AND SO FORTH).
