Abstract: This paper aims at finding the differences between MSA and JA in the area of future. It focuses on the forms and uses of these markers. It is found that MSA future markers are not used in JA; instead, a number of different markers are used to express different speakers’ attitudes towards the future activity. Moreover, MSA markers are not inflected while some of JA future markers are inflected for person, number and gender. It is found in this paper that differences between the two varieties of Arabic do exist but still they are two dialects of the same language, Arabic, and cannot be considered as two different languages because of some religious and political reasons.
