Of course, there has been a raft of questions and answers about how to use the construction would+Perfect Infinitive but one I have stumbled across on the Internet plunged me into bewilderment.
I have never met such an aspect of its use in any books on English Grammar. And here it is:
"It doesn't matter whether the action would have happened in the past or in the future. You use "would have (done)" to talk about something that's about to happen:
A: Don't forget, we have a meeting this afternoon at two.
B: Don't worry, I would have remembered!"
Can it be (or I may be misinterpreting something) that the construction of B: "...I would have remembered" relates to the future implication?
I.e., is the following line true?
- "Don't worry, I would have remembered!" = "Don't worry, I would have remembered about the meeting by half past one!" = "Don't worry, I will have remembered about the meeting by half past one!"
If there are any references to grammar rules on this usage, please render them to me.
