  • Second Romance future

    This variety has a 'second' form of the Romance future. The Romance future comprises, historically, the infinitive followed by present indicative forms of the the verb HABERE have. The Second Romance future appears to have been composed in the same way, except that the present subjunctive forms of HABERE are used. According to Scheitlin (1980:81), what we call the 'Second Romance future' is used to indicate 'uncertainty', a 'wish', or 'intention'.
