Message 1: Ukrainian Future Tense

Subject: Ukrainian Future Tense


Dear All,

In standard Ukrainian, the future is formed with an auxiliary verb
bearing number and gender agreement followed by the infinitive form of
the main verb. I have recently come in contact with a dialect of
standard Ukrainian (spoken in rural Manitoba, Canada) which is divergent
in its formation of the future tense: it features the same auxiliary,
but the main verb appears in the *past-tense form*; this means not only
that it uses the past-tense stem, but it bears * number and gender
agreement*.

Is this phenomenon common to other slavic languages? Is it common to a
language that would have been in contact with Ukraine in the 19th
century? Yiddish has been suggested as possible contact language.

I'm not a linguist; however, even if my question is of personal
interest, I will be happy to provide a summary of the answers provided.
Write to me directly at egertonpangea.ca
Thanks for your interest. Stephan Hardy.
