Word usage


Should I use "I shall not flag or fail" or "I will not flag or fail" ?

Traditionally, "shall" is used for the first person singular (I) and plural (we), but not many people know this rule any more and certainly don't use it in English.  If you use "will" in place of the traditional "shall", it gives it more stress.

... so I would recommend "will" as it seems to suit the meaning.
