When will your birthday be?

 

A few lessons back we saw ta'n used to ask "when?" about the past. Here we see ta'nug, which is used to ask "when?" about the future.

And yes, you guessed right: the endings for talking about "me" and "you" in the future are (for many speakers, at least) the same. The context of the conversation usually makes clear which one you mean, and you can always add in ni'n 'me' or gi'l 'you' if you need.
