In some regional dialects of Persian, there is a dedicated tense for future precedent. It is analogous to past precedent and is used to describe an action that will be completed before another future action. The future precedent is not used in standard Persian. However, in recent years, some Persian speakers use this verbal structure for translating English future perfect even though they are not technically equivalent.
