I understand that present tense "ir" could also mean future "will go". Is it the same when it's followed by another verb in infinitive? How can you make difference between:
- I will sleep
- I am going to sleep (seems ambiguous between 1 and 3)
- I go to sleep
- I will go to sleep
They are all translated the same way!
You can also say "eu dormirei", but it is more common to use the verb "ir" in this construction.
Following #4 English construction, many people say "Eu irei dormir" ("ir" in future tense), but it is considered wrong Portuguese. "Ir" must be present when used with another verb to express future.
Nice!! haha! I work as a translator, so I have to switch languages all the time! You have such a sharp eye, dude! It wouldn't have happened if I had reread the text...
But, I did this on purpose! I just wanted you to know that they have the same pronunciation! (kidding!)
