This article explores all uses of the Spanish future tense from a cognitive perspective and examines in detail the level of subjectivity displayed and the relationship to the ground. It is argued that these uses share a common feature: the echo of the ground (the speaker or the communication situation). The modal, evidential and temporal elements of the ground are proposed in a novel light, underlining their inherent interconnection.
