THE MODAL AUXILIARY WILL
Will+infinitive is said to be the future tense. Not so.
Will is a modal auxiliary like can or must.
Will+infinitive in English is no more a future tense than
werden+Infinitiv in German.
The text describes how will can be used - amply illustrated by authentic
examples in context.
