I am currently writing a research paper on modal auxiliaries and futurity, with a focus on the following: will, should, must and ought to. I am especially interested in the sentences of the following nature:
By March, you should read five books.
By March, you should have read five books.
I intend to conduct an acceptability judgment survey in order to determine a) how appropriate these sentences are
b) how grammatical these sentences are
I have found several sources (books) to help me with my research, but have been unable to find any articles related to this topic so far. If anyone knows where I may be able to find such articles, I would greatly appreciate it.
