Hi everyone and welcome to the Italian podcast, even today I am In the company (Join) Erica. Today we will discuss the use of the present rather than the future, which is a phenomenon that often occurs in spoken language.But let us first define these two Tense (Verb tense). What is now?Now is a tense, used to describe an action occur (occur) The moment you speak.
On the other hand, the future tense is used to express an action that will occur at a later time than the time it was spoken.
I think you all know these things, if you understand what we’re talking about, because they are many things basic (basic). Maybe you know (but maybe you don’t) the present is often used instead of the future. So the present tense is used to indicate actions that will happen in the future. As we said, this first happened in spoken language. It happens often, it happens often, and it cannot even be considered an error. This use is called “now is the future”.Usually when gifts are used in this way versus (Accompanying) An expression or adverb that expresses time Makes sense (Conveyed meaning) Future actions.
Let’s give some very common and very simple examples:
Tomorrow i’m going to the beach
I go to the dentist on Thursday (= I have an appointment with the dentist)
I move in August
I get married this summer
Within three months My lauren (I am going to graduate)
In all these examples, we can definitely use the future.
Tomorrow i’m going to the beach
I will call the dentist on Thursday, and so on.
If you understand English (I guess many of you, or almost all of you have learned it), this usage is very similar to the current ongoing tense of English, for future actions, plan (plan) So, for example, “I will get married this summer”, “I will move in August next year” (“I will move in August next year”). We use the present, but we mean future actions.
When talking about planned actions or in any case they will definitely happen in the future, use the present pro-future.
then non- We can say for example:
“We will only use electric cars in 2030”-this is a hypothesis, not a certainty nor (Nor is it) Planned action. So we can only say:
“In 2030 we will only use electric cars”
In some cases, only the future should be used
However, under certain specific circumstances, the future cannot replace (Replaced) from now on:
1. For actions that will have a duration or repetition in the future, Make promises and adverbs often forever and ever:
– I will love you forever
-There will always be space for you
– never change
-We will continue to meet
-Will do anything to help you
Now of course it can be used with the adverbs “always” and “never”, but it has a different meaning. E.g:
“He never listens to me” means: “every time I talk to him, he never listens to me, past, and may continue to (not) do so
If I say:
“He will never listen to me” = I think he will never want to listen to me
2. I think/I don’t think:
Another situation where we must use the present tense is when we use the verbs “I think”, “I don’t think” or “I don’t think it is.”
-I think we will go out around 5 o’clock
-I don’t think he will come to the party
-I think we will be late
-I don’t think we have time to go to Luca
Finally, when there is a manufacturing function in the future Assumptions:
-He will be 90 years old misremembered (approximately -Light it up. “Uncountable)-This means I think he is, I guess he is 90 years old. A conjecture.
-Won’t even be Italian
-We will have yes and no (also approximately or only) 50 Euros in total
This is a very, very common usage, and by the way, this usage also exists in other languages, such as Spanish. Please also tell me if this usage exists in your language. Many (foreigners) don’t know it, but it is widely used in spoken language.
Erika-So when is it better to use it?
David-very good question, Thank you for sending it to me! (Thanks for the question) Assuming the future is a standard register, it is always good. However, if you want to “sound more colloquially” in the way you speak, this is absolutely acceptable, and I can indeed advise you to use it now, because we Italians do just that.This doesn’t mean it looks a bit “From the Street” (slang) This is absolutely normal.In addition considering (consider) This usage is becoming more and more common in the language, so worth it (This is worth it) Use it. Why not use it? If you use the future, then you are certainly not wrong, but if you use the present, you will be able to get a more colloquial registration, but remember to use it for planned actions, or in any case you are sure they will happen.
Now, as usual, let us continue with the final dialogue, in which we will use various types of futures and presents with future functions.
E. Hi David, have you heard the news?Luigi and Rebecca get married in June
