Thanks to Markus’ very kind recommendation on Der Englisch Blog, last week’s Grammar guru question went off like a rocket: What’s the best alternative to “You don’t really need to register for the event”?
- “You don’t necessarily have to register for the event.” (86%, 36 Votes)
- “You mustn’t register for the event.” (14%, 6 Votes)
Thanks to everyone who voted or joined the discussion. Mustn’t forbids doing something, don’t have to + needn’t allow you NOT to do something.
This week the question is, which one is better:
- Why did you change jobs?
- Why did you change the job?
