LSJ says is a "disjunctive or", but does it correspond Latin's vel ("inclusive disjunction") or aut ("exclusive disjunction")?

  • No time to write an answer at the moment but I believe ἤ corresponds to aut, while vel is expressed by εἴτε.

Ἤ corresponds to Latin's aut (exclusive disjunction). St. Jerome uses aut to translate ἤ in Mt. 19:25.

Εἴτε corresponds to Latin's vel (inclusive disjuction).
