The paper discusses the findings of the corpus study conducted on the basis of the Main corpus of the Russian National Corpus. This study is viewed as a continuation of the experimental study reported in Puzhaeva (2016), Puzhaeva and Zevakhina (2018). The study confirmed the following experimentally established fact: preposed converbial clauses are significantly more typical of sentences with non-canonical control than postposed converbial clauses. Moreover, the amount of sentences with non-canonical control has significantly increased from the 18th century on.
