How to write two alternative adverbs ending in "ly"?
For instance, is it correct to say "conscious or unconsciously"?
Must we say "consciously or unconsciously"?
Which one is the correct way?
If you were unconscious you'd be unlikely to do anything, but if you did you'd certainly be doing it unconsciously.
We do that in Spanish, Bushwhacker --consciente o inconscientemente-- but it's not correct in English. Is this usage OK in Catalan? Just curious.

I think that Bhai's comment was made tongue-in-cheek and wasn't meant to be taken literally. The "correct" word in psychoanalytic theory is "unconscious." "Subconscious" is used by lay people and popular writers to mean "unconscious," but does not exist as a discrete state.
