3.4.1. Future Tense (сум)

There are two ways to express being in the future. They are compared in the chart below. Note that when the forms сум, си, е, сме, сте, се are used, the stress is always on the ќе that precedes them. When the forms бидам, бидеш, биде, бидеме, бидете, бидат are used, the stress is different in different dialects. In the northern dialects and what you hear in this tutorial, the stress is always on the би, whereas in the literary language and the western-central dialects, the stress will always be on the third syllable from the back, counting ќе as part of the word. For example (bold is stressed): ќе бидам, ќе бидеш, ќе биде, ќе бидеме, ќе бидете, ќе бидат. Know that you will be understood equally well using either of these two options.
