Shall we discuss the definition or meaning of words in the past tense & what they mean in the future tense
Thou shall not or should not - shouldn't in the future misunderstand or misconstrue the meaning of the word "should"
Should one do so,ye shall be required to reinterpet the meaning.therof forthwith not withstanding the re-interpetation of forsaid meaning
The definition of the word "should " past present and future
Should's present tense is shall
Should's future tense either does not exist or is unkown - shall't thou remember this in the future? Or ,is the word "should " used in the future tense of shall, as well as, it's past tense? Such as, thou shouldn't or should have,should've done something in the past or should do something in the future ? Thou shalt not!
The dictionary definition of the word "should"
" Used as an auxiliary to express the condition,obligation or propriety,probability,or futurity from a point of view in the past" Apparently this means hindsight is 20/20.
What does thou think of the dodo who hath written this uncomprehensable sentancing?
Let me see now, (to express the condition).What does that mean?
You "should" brush your teeth,if you expect them to stay in good condition?
If,should is the past tense of the word shall then why do we use the words should and have in conjuction ,such as you should have, we should have ,I should have or they should have?
Why not just say you could have,we could have,I could have or they could have?
The dictionary definition of the word "could " is used as an auxiliary in the past as a polite and less forceful alternative to the word can. It's the past tense for the word "can" .
The word "could" is to the word "can" as the word "should " is to the word "shall ".
If,the use of the word "should" or the word "could" is (to express futurity from a point of view in the past),as defined then most people must disagree with this concept since most people have used the words "should" and "could" from not only from a point of view in the past ,but also from the point of view of the future and almost never use it,or see it used in the present tense of "shall " although the word "can" has been is used extensively ,the word "shall" is not only under used ,but misunderstood except maybe in the legal profession where words sometimes are defined by the lawyers themselves in the context they define language.So much for clarity,and common definitions.
Shall we continue?
The dictionary definition of the word "shall"
" Shall " ; used as an auxiliary to express a command,what seems inevitable or likely in the future,simple futurity,or determination.The past tense of shall being "should"
Shall meaning something that should have been done or could have been done ,rather than something that "must" be done right away.which seems to me to be an oxymoron since the word shall in and of itself,"should" mean "NOW" or "MUST" rather than be thought of as something that's optional or voluntary ,rather than being manditory as it seems it was ment to convey
When used in conjunction with other words such as;
(Today you shall) ,(tomorrow you shall), (the next day you shall) or( I shall and we shall) all use the word "shall " and when used in a sentance as presented here can be used to refer to the past,present or furture as well as indicating something that is manditory,rather than optional. When we use the word should most of us think of the word "should" as being just that optional..
The words "should" and "shall",and the words "would" and "will" are these words synonymous,synchronous,systematic with each other?
If,we "should" -" we "shall" If,we "would" - we "will"
If,we "shant" - we "should" not - If,we "shall not" - "will" not. or "shouldn't" - we "won't"
If,we do - we "shall" - If,we "should" - we "will"
If,all of the above is true then "shall" the above be construed a "syllogism" ?
What about words like past ,present and future?
Do we have other words that can be used as an auxiliary?
"Yesterday" and "yesteryear",are the only words that come to mind as auxiliary words for the word "past "
"Now" or "today",is the only words I can think of to used as an auxiliary for the word " present ".
"Tomorrow", is the only word I can think of that can be used as an auxiliary to the word " future "
The only other possible use of these three words,past,present,and future that could indicate another time frame other than the one they individually represent,is when they are used together in a sentance.where they are compared to each other's meanings.
The word "future" could be used in place of the word, "tomorrow" unless one litterally means the next day.
The word "Today" could be,used in place of the word "present" unless one litterally means one particular day on the calander.
"Tomorrows past" is the "present" and "yesterdays past" is even further in the past. than the present or "yesteryear".
Is there such a concept as yesterday's future,today's future or tomorrows future ,yesterday's past,tomorrows past or the future's past'?
Is,there a difference between yesterdays future,todays future and tomorrows future?
If,the past has an effect on the present and the present has an effect on the future ,what does the future have an effect on? itself?
Is there such a thing as the future? If,not,then all there really is,is the present and that's all there really was or, is or will be, a constantly changing present.!
