Le futur linguistique: temps lineaire ou temps ramifie (The Linguistic Future: Linear or Branching Time)?
Martin, Robert
Langages, v15 n64 p81-92 Dec 1981

The distinction between linear and branching time, or, certainty and possibility, central to this discussion, leads to a comparative analysis of future and conditional. (MES)
