Future tense (link)

There are many ways in which a writer can express what may be upcoming in the future.  I recently found these examples: http://mount-oregano.livejournal.com/136802.html?thread=434018&

I was really impressed ’cause I didn’t know we had so many choices.  I looked up tense, and in Webster’s New World Dictionary (Third College Edition) I found this: “English tenses other than the simple present and simple past are formed by the use of an auxiliary verb with a participle or an infinitive.”

Thanks, Sue!  (I’m embarassed to admit that I’m an English major, and I didn’t know that.)
