Dallas, this is even better than I thought. 

Comment by A Former Member on November 11, 2012 at 6:51pm

You know, you can also use shall to patronize or dismiss someone, or make it clear that you have no intention of doing something. If someone tells you that you are too heavy and you really shouldn't have a second helping of cake, you can say "I shall remember that in the future, " which would mean, of course, "mind your own damn business because I'm going to eat as much cake as I want."

Whereas, if you said "I will remember that in the future," your intention would be to acknowledge that bit of advice as beneficial to losing weight. 

This is what I love about language: the entire meaning of a sentence can be changed by one small and seemingly insignificant word.

I agree that is interesting about the word shall!  I will have to tell my daughter, she will like that!  Thanks for all the beautiful bird pictures everyone has found and put here.  Beautiful!  And thanks to Steph for starting the group! :)

Dallas, I had no idea. I like British comedy and they always use shall and shant and they sound kind of cool. Now I know. 

I shall start a bird journal next year. 

I will take my pills tonight. 

Makes good sense. Thanks.

Thank you Dallas on your explanation of word choice. It's very important when writing.
