Words wouldn't be enough to describe my love for you.

Words won't be enough to describe my love for you.

Are Wouldn't/ Won't interchangeable in the above construction? What's the difference in their meaning if they're not?

  • These two words are never interchangeable without a difference in meaning. – Alan Carmack Apr 17 '16 at 15:24
  • For all practical purposes, both the above AND Words aren't enough... would all be interchangeable in most contexts. So go for the simpler present tense, the same as nearly everyone else. – FumbleFingers Apr 17 '16 at 17:08

If I were to describe my love for you (hypothetical situation), words wouldn't be enough.

When I describe my love for you (future event), words won't be enough.
