Will – An Interjection Used in Reported Clauses

Would is an interjection used in reported clauses. The verb would means “would you.” When used in a reported clause, would implies a request, order, or instruction. It can also mean “would you like to” or “would you like to invite someone to something.”


The acronym WILL is the call sign for three public broadcasting stations owned by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and operated by the Division of Broadcasting. They are PBS member station WILL-TV, National Public Radio and the University’s Illinois Public Media. All three stations operate out of Campbell Hall for Public Telecommunication. Lois Dickson, a long-time contributor, gave $1 million to WILL-TV in 2004. Dickson passed away at age 95. The station had a weather department before budget cuts.

A will specifies how an estate will be distributed and managed after the testator’s death. The legal document has several forms. Depending on the state, it may be a simple will or a testamentary will. The latter type is usually used when the deceased is unable to name a successor. Lastly, a mirror or joint will blends multiple individual wills. Handwritten wills are often not legal in every state. Therefore, the will should be signed by the testator himself.

A legacy, also known as a bequest, is a testamentary gift of personal property. This type of gift is often money or non-monetary property. In contrast, a codicil is an amendment to a will that partially or fully revokes an existing will. The residuary estate is the property remaining after specific bequests are distributed. The residuary legatees are left with the residuary estate, which includes the remaining personal property.

The legal age to make a will is generally 18 years old. You must be legally responsible and in good mental health to make a valid document. You should also make sure you have witnesses to prove that you have the legal capacity to make a Will. It is important to note that a partially handwritten will is held to a higher standard than a typewritten one. If your handwriting is not legible, the executors may not be able to carry out your wishes.
