Synonyms of "Have" and their differences

Q: В чем разница между you should not have to и you don't need to or you don't have to ?
A: “you don’t need to” and “you don’t have to” and pretty much the same thing. “Need” is just a stronger word meaning “It’s not necessary for you to___”

“You should not have to” means you don’t want someone to have to do something or you don’t think someone had to do something

“I know you want to send me money to help me out, but you shouldn’t have to do that” this sound like they regret being in a situation where their friends think they should support to speaker financially.

“You took your phone off the charger 3 hours ago. You shouldn’t have to charge it again” This implies that the phone has low battery even though it was just charged. So the speaker is saying because it was just charged, the person should not have to charge.

A: They mean the same thing, but only when you are speaking in a present, imperative sentence can they be exchanged without any restructuring.


“I (must) walk the dog.”

“I (have to) walk the dog.”

Both natural and appropriate. However, in a question or in the past or future tense, they cannot be exchanged without restructuring the sentence.


“Do I have to walk the dog?”

“Must I walk the dog?”


“I will have to walk the dog.”
(natural) (no need to add when you will walk the dog it is implied in the sentence that you will have to walk the dog in the future.)

“I must walk the dog tomorrow.”
(natural but less common) (you have to use a time frame. Without using an adjective of time, the sentence is present tense)
