Maltese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From ikun (he will be) + l- (to)

Verb[edit]

ikollu (perfect kell)

  1. he will have; he will get (possession; functional future of għand)
  2. he will have to, he must (obligation (with following verb))

Inflection[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

  • The inflection of this verbal form is akin to a defective verb (in the third person singular) followed by object pronoun affixes.
When referring to possession, the inflected form is followed by a noun:
Ikollni ktieb -- I will get (have) a book
When meaning "will have to", each inflected form is followed by a corresponding conjugated form of the sense verb in the imperfective:
Ikollna niġu -- We will have to go/We must go
