Abstract: This article presents results from a corpus study on the distribution of the/L/conditional copula ise and its clitic form. We show that when the morpheme/L/is used as a topic marker in nominal contexts, it appears predominantly in/L/its full form. However, the clitic form =(y)sA is preferred over the free/L/form when it is used as a conditional marker in both nominal and verbal/L/contexts, as well as a conjunction in combination with infinitives in the/L/ablative case. These results are discussed in the framework of/L/grammaticalization theory.
