I've just learned the grammar of "will be doing" and I was trying to make sentences with that. But I got confused with the difference between "will do" and "will be doing" in these sentences. Can we use both?

If his temper tantrum continues, he'll be lashing out at anyone at the party tomorrow.

If his temper tantrum continues, he'll lash out at anyone at the party tomorrow.

Neither of the phrases "will be doing" or "will do" are present in your examples.

However, it might help to know that all three of the following sentences are grammatically correct. Additionally, all three sentences have the same meaning.

  • "If his temper tantrum continues, he will be lashing out at anyone at the party tomorrow."

  • "If his temper tantrum continues, he will lash out at anyone at the party tomorrow."

  • If his temper tantrum continues, he'll lash out at anyone at the party tomorrow.

I will note that all of those sentences are depressing. I do not always know what a person will do the next day. Also, people tend to be more respectful, and show courtesy, to other guests at parties, even when they are feeling angry.

  • Thanks for your explanation. But are you saying that these words are not meaningful together? When I was writing it, I was thinking about a little child who is in his temper tantrum and if it continues, he will act angry to other people.
