    conditionals

    I´m well aware of the three types of conditionals and the zero conditional as well. But recently I´ve seen a will + will structure used, which I´ve never come across before.
    I also know there´s a combination between the second and the third conditional.

    I was wondering when this structure may be used, and if there are more combinations rather than the common ones.

    Thanks a lot,
    Magg

    Re: conditionals

    What was the sentence?

    EX: I will if you will.

    There are a great deal of sites on-line that describe mixed conditionals. Try searching under that term.

    I don´t remember the sentence, but I´ll search what you suggest.

    Yes, there are many more condotional structures than the main 4. Your "will + will" is one of those others.

    I will be your king if you will be my queen.

    That type of sentence expresses an equivalence of commitment or promise, regarding an action.

    A if + will + will construction would not be a mixed conditional.
