In Zyrian when/while-clauses can be formed by converbs with suffix -ig-(en) which gives the base for suggestions about the etymology of the -on'n'ig- complex (Usacheva & Serdobolskaya 2015).
The difference in form between the Beserman recessive marker and the corresponding Udmurt postposition lasan 'from the side' can then be explained by the dialectal variation of the egressive marker, which has the form -(i)sen in some Udmurt and Komi dialects and -san in others (including literary Komi Zyrian and Komi Permyak).
