All normal verbs can be conjugated in the future tense.
e.g. I know, I will know. I do, I will do.
But I have noticed that we cannot conjugate the modal verb
can in the future tense.
I will can?
Although we are able to conjugate the phrase
be able (that has approximately the same meaning of
will be able, we cannot conjugate
can. Is there a way to express
can in the future tense without using the expression
to be able?
dare are sometimes utilised as a modal verb.
I need not. Need I not? I dare say. Dare he do it?
Are we able to conjugate these verbs in the future tense as modal verbs?
need were used as a ‘normal’ verb, an example of it in the future tense would be
I will need to do it. Can we write that sentence by making
need a modal verb?
