The Future is When?

Possible ways to confront The Future:

Near Future– in the future, soon

Hodiernal Future– sometime today

Post-Hodiernal Future– sometime after today

Remote Future– in the more distant future

Predictive Future– expressions of prediction, rather than intentions

NonFuture– events in either the past or present (unclear which)

NonPast– events in the present or future (unclear which)

Not-Yet– neither past nor present, but expected to happen in the future

Future Perfect-by some time in the future, before some time in the future

Future-in-Future– at some time in the future, will still be in the future

Future-in-Past- at some time in the past, will be in the future

Future-Perfect-in-Past-
by some time which is in the future of some time in the past
