    Hang on, let me jump in my Tardis, pop back to a time when anyone spoke Middle English and ask Chaucer for you!

    Re: What is correct ?

    Is it correct to use 'will' in 'Please meet me next week, when you will come to my town'?
    May I describe emsr2d2's above post as satirical or sarcastic?

    It was most definitely sarcastic!
