writingThere are times when writers are uncertain about what will happen and need to refer to future events as possibilities or probabilities, not as future certainties.

In this lesson we will review the language used to indicate how 'probable' future events are, i.e. what is the likelihood that they will happen.

We can use certain modal verbs followed by the bare infinitive (i.e. the infinitive without ‘to’) to refer to the future. These modal verbs can be used in the active and passive voice.
