This quantitative, diachronic study of variation between the Spanish
Synthetic Future cantaré (SF) and the Periphrastic Future voy a cantar
(PF) tackles the development of these two expressions within and
outside the realm of future temporal reference in Spanish since Old
Spanish through the early 21st century. Working within the framework
of grammaticization and variation theory, this study begins with a
qualitative and quantitative
form-based analysis of each form, based on over 5,500 tokens extracted
from a 935,000-word written and oral corpus.

In the case of the SF, the relationship between SF occurrences in
future temporal contexts and those in non-future epistemic contexts is
addressed, and it is shown that these two contexts of use have
statistically significant differences in distributional tendencies. In
the case of the PF, which appeared with a relative frequency of just
over 10% in the 17th-century data, it is argued that very few uses are
not subsumed under future temporal expression.

The form-based analyses are followed by four independent
function-based analyses for each time period spanning the 17th through
the 20th centuries, in which the factors conditioning SF-PF variation
are examined. A comparison of these analyses reveals, first, a
contextual generalization of the PF into erstwhile SF territory
beginning in the 17th century, and second, a shift in the division of
labor in future temporal expression as the SF loses
and the PF gains default future status in the 20th century. A return
to the form-based study offers insight into this shift, suggesting
that the increased use of SF in epistemic modal contexts (e.g. ¿dónde
estará María ahora? 'Where might María be now?') perturbed the
division of labor between the SF and PF, thereby altering the
linguistic conditioning on the
two future temporal expression variants in Spanish today.

The form-based analyses offer a diachronic portrait of each expression
and the particular contexts in which each expression occurs. The
fuction-based analyses give a snopshot of the division of labor
between these two variants at each time period, while comparison of
these analyses reveals the details of the dynamic process of the
side-by-side grammaticization of these variants.
