Hello everyone,

In the first movie of Lord of the Rings there is a scene Gandalf the Grey fought against the red beast on the tunnel or something like a small bridge and he said you shell not pass. Is this sentence meaning the same meanas you can not pass. If it is, why would not he say cannot instead shell not..
best regards...

It' "you shall not pass", which means "you will not pass". As to why he says that, it's because that's how it is written.
 
I think the 'shall' is used to mean 'must', an order, an imperative.

No, it's "will". "You will not pass!" "I have decided, I will not allow you to pass!"
 
thanks a lot for your helpful explanations:-D
