I've found an exercise on the future continuous tense and I think one of the sentences in it is wrong or, at least, not usually heard. Here it is:
Andrew will be wanting to hear all the news about Sandra.
Is this sentence acceptable in any context? I thought that some verbs, namely the so-called "stative verbs" were not usually used in the progressive aspect. I also know that there are some cases in which we may use these verbs in the progressive. E.g.:
I enjoy going to the cinema on Sundays.
I'm really enjoying this party!
They will surely enjoy the experience.
This time next year, we will be enjoying a wonderful holiday in Paris.
But I just don't think "want" belongs to this kind of verbs and the sentece above sounds awkward to me. What do you think?
Thanks a lot!
It's correct in British English- it is used about an assumption. I am not sure what Americans will make of it.
