Relative Future (definition)
To see the discussion of the formation and use of the relative future see Relative Future
The Relative Future a special verb form that is found after certain particles in Scottish Gaelic, such as ma 'if', Cò 'who', a 'who/which/that', cuin a 'when', dè 'what'.
Note that this term is often used when talking about other languages to refer to a future event about to occur at a time that is determined by the context of the phrase, and not necessarily the time indicated in the rest of the sentence. This is not the use of the term in Gaelic.
