(Editor’s note: In Tunisian Arabic, “I will…” is directly translated as Ena bech / أنا باش, however, “I will” as a standalone expression does not have a direct translation. Speakers of Tunisian Arabic will usually complete the statement (E.g., “I will go to the store in a moment.” as Ena bech nemchi lel 7anout chwaya okhra.  / .أنا باش نمشي للحانوت شوية أخرى) or they may simply say, Ey / أي which means “Yes” or Behi which means “Okay”.)
