The development of future constructions in English

by Leslie K Arnovick | 01 September 1990
Hardback
Category: Other Books
Arnovick examines the evolution of the English verbal system in a period of significant transformation by tracing the development in Old and Middle English of will and shall future constructions. Through pragmatic analysis of speech acts, she demonstrates how speakers employed both modal and temporal auxiliaries to communicate attitudes about the future. Arnovick finds historic precedent as well as intrinsic rationale for the received rules about will and shall.
