    Modal Verbs : Should

    Should is an auxiliary verb, a modal auxiliary verb. We use should mainly to:

    * give advice or make recommendations
    * talk about obligation
    * talk about probability and expectation
    * express the conditional mood
    * replace a subjunctive structure

    Structure of Should

    subject + should + main verb

    The main verb is always the bare infinitive (infinitive without "to").



    Notice that:

    * Should is invariable. There is only one form of should.
    * The main verb is always the bare infinitive.

    NOTE:





    Use of Should

    should: Giving advice, opinions

    We often use should when offering advice or opinions (similar to ought to):

    * You should see the new James Bond movie. It's great!
    * You should try to lose weight.
    * John should get a haircut.
    * He shouldn't smoke. And he should stop drinking too.
    * What should I wear?
    * They should make that illegal.
    * There should be a law against that.
    * People should worry more about global warming.

    NOTE:



    should: Obligation, duty, correctness

    Another use of should (also similar to ought to) is to indicate a kind of obligation, duty or correctness, often when criticizing another person:

    * You should be wearing your seat belt. (obligation)
    * I should be at work now. (duty)
    * You shouldn't have said that to her. (correctness)
    * He should have been more careful.
    * Should you be driving so fast?

    should: Probability, expectation

    We use should to indicate that we think something is probable (we expect it to happen):

    * Are you ready? The train should be here soon.
    * $10 is enough. It shouldn't cost more than that.
    * Let's call Mary. She should have finished work by now.

    should: Conditionals

    We sometimes use should (instead of would) for the first person singular (I) and first person plural (we) of some conditionals:

    * If I lost my job I should have no money.
    (If he lost his job he would have no money.)
    * We should be grateful if you could send us your latest catalogue.

    This is not a very important distinction. (More about the use of shall/will and should/would.)

    should: (If I were you I should...)

    We often use the conditional structure "If I were you I should..." to give advice.

    * If I were you, I should complain to the manager.
    * If I were you I shouldn't worry about it.
    * I shouldn't say anything if I were you.

    Note that we can omit "If I were you..." and just say:

    * I should complain to the manager.
    * I shouldn't worry about it.
    * I shouldn't say anything.

    In these cases, the phrase "I should" really means something like "you should".

    should: Pseudo subjunctive

    We often use a special verb form called the subjunctive when talking about events that somebody wants to happen, hopes will happen or imagines happening, for example:

    * The president insists that the prime minister attend the meeting.

    However, this is much more common in American English. British English speakers would probably convey the same idea using should:

    * The president insists that the prime minister should attend the meeting.

    Here are some more examples:



    should: Why should..? | How should..?

    If we don't understand (or agree with) something, we may use "Why should..?":

    * Why should it be illegal to commit suicide? It's your life.

    "Why should..?" and "How should..?" can also indicate anger or irritation:

    * "Help me with this." | "Why should I?"
    * "Where are my keys?" | "How should I know?"

    My wound neither bleeds, nor heals..The gone forgets, the one behind always hurts...I can't escape, your smell is everywhere..
