"elseif" or "else if" in csh

I have been using the if statement in csh like this

if ( $opt1 == 1 ) then

elseif ( $opt2 == 1 ) then


Seems to work, but got

Badly placed ()'s.

When I used a space in the elseif, a space between the 'else' and the 'if' it worked

if ( $opt1 == 1 ) then

else if ( $opt2 == 1 ) then


Any idea why the thing sometimes works and sometimes not???
