    can / will

    Hi there,
    What is the difference between 'Will you shut the door, please?' and 'Can you shut the door, please?' Does 'Will you shut the door, please?' sound more like a command than ''Can you shut the door, please?'?

    Re: can / will

    Hi there,
    Does 'Will you shut the door, please?' sound like a command, a promise or asking for an offer or request? Just like in 'Will you do me a favour?'
