Hi

If you find some time please answer my question.

What if I put "will" after "you," i.e., If you will find some time....., would it be incorrect? I suppose it would, but isn't it acceptable?

thanks

It's unnatural (to me, anyway).
Mr. Wordy, what about this one:

I'll be glad if you will find time to drop by and look at my recent photos.

Again, I don't think it's something I would ever say. In real life, I would probably say something like "It'd be great if you could find time to drop by...".
Hi

I know that we sholdn't use "will" after "if" in conditional sentences, e.g. If you WILL study hard you will pass the exam.

However, is my original sentence a conditional one?

cheers!

I guess so... why wouldn't it be?

I see. Now then, I understand why "will" is not alright here. Thanks.
Hey Newguest,

Just adhere to the rule and don't use "will" after "if" (and "when") in conditional sentences.
RuslanaHey Newguest,

Just adhere to the rule and don't use "will" after "if" (and "when") in conditional sentences.

but only in conditional sentences.

I was thinking of a non conditional sentence and use "will" after "if" but nothing came to my mind Emotion: smile
