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?'?

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?'

Tks
pete
