Dictionary Meaning Of Will

As an auxiliary, will is used to denote futurity dependent
on the verb. Thus, in first person, I will denotes willingness,
consent, promise; and when will is emphasized, it denotes
determination or fixed purpose; as, I will go if you wish; I will go at
all hazards. In the second and third persons, the idea of distinct
volition, wish, or purpose is evanescent, and simple certainty is
appropriately expressed; as, You will go, or He will go, describes
a future event as a fact only. To emphasize will denotes (according to
the tone or context) certain futurity or fixed determination.
