Dear  Lingtyp users,

a month ago (Aug. 4th) I posted a query concerning the use of 'will' as deontic/necessity modal. I got many interesting answers and I wish to thank all the colleagues who sent me the requested information. They are cited in the attachment, which is a fragment of a lecture I'll give at the end of this month in Cagliari at congress of  the Societa' Italiana di Glottologia (SIG). I have elaborated the information I got in footnotes 1 and 2 (which are here offered in an Engl. version).
