Can you conjugate the verb if before the verb there is a modal verb such as "will"?

For example:

1. Something bad will happen to you...

2. Something bad will happenS to you...

    No, verbs that follow a modal verb are never conjugated.  This is true of all Germanic languages & Romance languages as well (that I'm aware of).

    No, it would be in the infinitive.

    No. We never conjugate the verb after modals or auxiliaries.

    It will happen ...

    It might happen ...

    It did happen ...

    Can it happen?

    Could it happen?

    It may happen.

    It shouldn't happen.

    etc etc

    "will"  can imply two facts, firstly it is used to imply simple future tense. Ex. She will leave for London tomorrow.Here, WILL is used as an auxiliary verb.

    But as a modal auxiliary, here is an example,  He will do it whatever you say. This WILL means He insists on doing it, WILL 8s stressed.

    I haven't found any conjunction of modal auxiliaries.

    The second one is wrong.. you don't need to add S to "happen".
