Future and Future perfect

26 Ene

Today, we will study Future and Future perfect  “

  The grammarbook rules for Shalland Will are already antiquated; even the increasingly  popular  use of Going to “ sounds out of place sometimes, althought wishful thinking has tried to make it  the solution to all problems.

Two golden rules :

1 – Beware of the innocent-looking going to “ form

2- When in doubt usewill”.

So: “Going to “

   As a future form , it is not a pure futurity .

With persons : has meaning of intention or certainty

e.G
He’s going to give me a new one tomorrow.
So you are off to China, are you ? Well , you are going to see some queer things there.

So: “Going to “

As a future form , it is not a pure futurity .

With things : has meaning of probability or inevitability  in the mind of the speaker.

e.G

Look out ! The tram is going to overturn.
What’s going to happen next ?

So: “Pure future

Normal pure or colourless future is expressed by Shall “ in the First Person Singular and Plural

I shall             —        We   shall

It must be tacitly understood that when talking about people, the possibility of wish, will, promise , or intention is always like to be present

So: “Pure future

Normal pure or colourless future is expressed by Will “ in others person , Singular and Plural

HE /She / it    will       — singular

 You / they     will       — Plural

 The purest futures are the least personal ones, especially when the future action is made to depend upon some external factor, as with If “  or Whenclauses

Except  in questions , the Willformis very commonly heard for all persons.

So: “Pure future

I shall  know about him from his next letter

We   shall  stay here till you come back.

It must be tacitly understood that when talking about people, the possibility of wish, will, promise , or intention is always like to be present
 

So: “Pure future

HE  will  know about her from her next letter

You  will  stay here till he  comes back.

It must be tacitly understood that when talking about people, the possibility of wish, will, promise , or intention is always like to be present
