4 Discussing the syntactic expression of futurity, Solta (1980) points out that five types of constructions are used on the Balkans: (a) forms of the “will” auxiliary + infinitive; (b) forms of the “will” auxiliary + tensed verb forms; (c) forms of the “will” auxiliary + subjunctive construction introduced by a subjunctive marker; (d) forms of the “have” auxiliary + infinitives introduced by an infinitive marker; and (e) forms of the “have” auxiliary + subjunctive constructions introduced by a subjunctive marker.

2 Apart from discussing the origin of balkanisms,51 Balkanists have mainly been concerned with compiling lists of similarities and making parallels between the lexical and grammatical forms of the Balkan languages,52 thus perpetuating a picture of uniformity.

The Balkan languages differ rather dramatically in the extent to which they show the presence of a given feature and the divergences concerning the presence of a feature deserves as much emphasis as the general convergence or any of the specific convergences.
