Abstract

This paper puts forward the hypothesis that there is a future infinitive evolving in present day German and addresses the theoretical consequences that this might have. Section 1 gives the basic definitions as well as some introductory examples. Section 2 presents evidence in favour of the hypothesis, and possible objections are considered in section 3. Finally, section 4 focusses on more theoretical implications.
