 us   /ʃæl, ʃəl/ fml
used when referring to the ​futureinstead of "will," esp. in ​questions: Shall we go? law Nothing in this ​letter shall be ​construed as a ​license to use ​ourproperty. Note: In the past, as taught in schools, the future tense in English was formed with "shall" in the first person – I shall go, we shall go – and "will" in the second and third persons – you will go, Mary will go, they will go. In modern American English, "will" is commonly used in speech and writing for all three persons – I will go, etc. "Shall" is used mainly in formal situations with the first person – We shall be ​pleased to ​acceptyourinvitation – and in legal documents.
