    Could you help me with this sentence?

    "Maybe I will go somewhere with my wife."

    Does this "will" mean "intention" or "prediction"?

    Re: will

    With only these words to go on, we only know that there is a possibility of the person going somewhere with his wife. It depends on what has been said before this. If the other person has just asked what the person is planning to do at the weekend, it would be more of an intention than a prediction.
