Modal verbs #2 (permalink) Tue Mar 15, 2005 21:51 pm   Modal verbs
 

Should and must are modal verbs, will is a help (auxiliary) verb.
Should expresses a strong recommendation while must indicates an obligation.

Hi All

I just wonder what 'You shouldn't have.' means in this context. Is it just a polite expression of acceptance?
