5. 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.
