Fenn, Peter
Neusprachliche Mitteilungen, v31 n3 p175-81 1978
Discusses the semantic functions of the English future formations: "will/shall,""to be going to," and the present tense. Points out that these all have modal as well as temporal significance, making the traditional teaching of the English future imprecise and misleading. (IFS/WGA)
