AdjectiveEdit

to come (not comparable)

  1. Imminent, coming, future.
    • 2002 December 18, David Attenborough, “Meat Eaters”, episode 5 of season 1 of The Life of Mammals, at 23:56:
      It's a bonding session that reminds each hunter of its place in the team — invaluable in the struggle to come.

Usage notesEdit

  • To come is not a true adjective; rather, syntactically, it is simply the to-infinitive of the verb come. As a result, it follows the noun that it modifies, rather than preceding it.
