"Shall,""Will," and the Future.
Tregidgo, P. S.
English Language Teaching Journal, v34 n4 p265-70 Jul 1980
Discusses future-tense form possibilities in English and their pedagogical implications. Six possibilities are discussed: (1) the future tense proper, signalled by "if" + present or mental state verbs; (2) declaration of intent, with "I'll" or "we'll"; (3) "Shall I/we" questions; (4) "will you" requests; (5) the future progressive as an "impersonal" future; and (6) present-tense forms with future reference.
