Continuing with Gary’s list:

  1. Will you be ready on time?

Right. Ready. and On time. OK. Readiness is a state I suppose, so “will you be at readiness” will work. On time, though… On time for what? At a specific time? At the time we have previously decided upon? I suppose this could be a time word equivalent of susi (here, there, this place, that place). Something that meant now, then, this time, that time: yanda. So, “Will you be ready then?”
