[INDOLOGY] Retroflexion and gender in viruses

I don't currently have access to my books and papers, but I believe for Panini the only optionality or exceptions to nati all involve morphological boundaries - either nominal compounding, or preverb-verb compounding.

Are there any genuine examples of exceptions/optionality of nati not involving a morphological boundary (parallel to the many exceptions to ruki, like kusuma-)?

If we could split Korona- into something like Kora-una-, then perhaps we could have the optionality; but then again for Panini, the tendency is that compounds forming names are more disposed to nati than freely formed compounds, so even as a compound name we would expect the retroflex, I think.

John

Dear Harry,

     There are similar alternating usages found in Sanskrit as well and authorized by Panini, for example -

विभाषौषधिवनस्पतिभ्यः ८।४।६

काशिकावृत्ति - वनम् इत्येव। ओषधिवाचि यत् पूर्वपदं वनस्पतिवाचि च तत्स्थान् निमित्तादुत्तरस्य वननकारस्य णकार आदेशो भवति विभाषा। ओषधिवाचिभ्यस् तावत् दूर्वावणम्, दूर्वावनम्। मूर्वावणम्, मूर्वावनम्। वनस्पतिभ्यः शिरीषवणम्, शिरीषवनम्। बदरीवणम्, बदरीवनम्।
