AND REMEMBER Non-Continuous Verbs / Mixed Verbs

It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any continuous tenses.

Also, certain non-continuous meanings for Mixed Verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses.

Instead of using Future Continuous with these verbs, you must use Simple Future.

Examples:

* Jane will be being at my house when you arrive. Not Correct
* Jane will be at my house when you arrive. Correct

At 8:30 tomorrow, he will be being interviewed.
_______

This sentence is correct, but the passive future progressive is not frequently used.

You can tell that it is correct, though. At 8:30 tomorrow, someone will be interviewing him. The interview will have started before 8:30, so that at 8:30 he will be in the middle of the interview. So, at 8:30 tomorrow, he will be being interviewed.

You can't say, "At 8:30 tomorrow he will be interviewed." This sentence would mean that 8:30 will be the start of the interview.
_______

It's difficult to imagine sentences with a passive future progressive. I remember a linguistics professor asking the class to come up with one using a modal, and nobody could. Then he gave us this scenario:

A: I didn't see the antique clock on the mantelpiece at the Smiths' house yesterday. What happened to it?

B: Oh, it must have been being fixed at the shop. I know that it needed a tune-up in order to keep the correct time.

ACTIVE / PASSIVE

Examples:

* At 8:00 PM tonight, John will be washing the dishes. Active
* At 8:00 PM tonight, the dishes will be being washed by John. Passive

* At 8:00 PM tonight, John is going to be washing the dishes. Active
* At 8:00 PM tonight, the dishes are going to be being washed by John. Passive

NOTE: Passive forms of the Future Continuous are not common.
