Yes there are, two of the relevant references are even up free online:
Dahl, Östen. 1985. Tense and aspect systems. Oxford: Blackwell.
ere's a link to a free PDF of Dahl (1985
Östen Dahl, Viveka Velupillai. 2013. The Future Tense.
In: Dryer, Matthew S. & Haspelmath, Martin (eds.)
The World Atlas of Language Structures Online.
Leipzig: Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.
I'm sure others will suggest lots of other literature here on this list,
but I thought I'd tell you about these two right away since they're so
Here are two more very relevant references:
Dahl, Ö. 2006. Future Tense and Future Time Reference. vol. 4. Encyclopedia
of Language & Linguistics, ed. by Keith Brown. 704-706. Oxford: Elsevier.
(might be freely available through your university library too)
Dahl, Östen. 2000. The grammar of future time reference in European
languages. In Tense and aspect in the languages of Europe, ed. by Östen
Dahl, 309-328. Berlin: de Gruyter
Sharing is caring, if you stumble across something you think I might find
interesting then send it my way. I do the same.
Please forgive me for any mistakes of orthography (especially Swedish and
French diacritics), I try to answer as fast as possible and sometimes that
results in less than optimal key board output.
