They are different.


First -se/-sa belongs to "ise", conditional


"ise" http://www.turkishclass.com/turkish_lesson_279


If the word which you bring "ise" ends with a consonant, "i" of "ise" disappears: -se/-sa.

If the word which you bring "ise" ends with a vowel, "i" turns "y": -yse/-ysa


This can be used even if "eğer" is not used.


Other -se/-sa is different. It belongs to "keşke". It expresses the wishes. One can use it even without "keşke" like other one.


There is another -se/-sa which is sometimes used as the same as "ise", for verbs. But it is too slight difference, perhaps @tunci can explain. I´m not able to explain it at the moment.

yarın (tomorrow)

koşmak (to run)

-->iyi leş eme z se m


Paran eksikse birkaç lira verebiliriz. (We can give a few liras if your money is missing.)
