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