English - Verb

SHOULD * (auxiliary) Used to form the future tense of the subjunctive mood, usually in the first person. _If I SHOULD be late, go without me._ _SHOULD you need extra blankets, you will find them in the closet._ * 1922, Margery Williams, _The Velveteen Rabbit_ It was a long weary time, for the Boy was too ill to play, and the little Rabbit found it rather dull with nothing to do all day long. But he snuggled down patiently, and looked forward to the time when the Boy SHOULD be well again, and they would go out in the garden amongst the flowers and the butterflies and play splendid games in the raspberry thicket like they used to. * (auxiliary) Be obliged to; have an obligation to; indicates that the subject of the sentence has some obligation to execute the sentence predicate. _What do I think? What SHOULD I think?_ _You SHOULD never drink and drive._ * (auxiliary) ought to; indicates that an action is correct, beneficial or desirable. _You SHOULD brush your teeth every day._ _I SHOULD exercise more often, but I'm too lazy._ * (Discuss(+) this sense) (auxiliary, past participle) Indicates that an action was expected, but did not occur. _When they pressed the button, the building SHOULD have exploded._ * (auxiliary) Will likely (become or do something); indicates that the subject of the sentence is likely to execute the sentence predicate. _You SHOULD be warm enough with that coat._ * (formal or dated) A variant of would. * 1817, Jane Austen, _Northanger Abbey‎_ I SHOULD like to dine with him. I dare say he gives famous dinners. * 1900, L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz "If our friends, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, were only with us," said the Lion, "I SHOULD be quite happy." * 1900, L. Frank Baum , _The Wonderful Wizard of Oz_ Chapter 23 "Your Silver Shoes will carry you over the desert," replied Glinda. "If you had known their power you could have gone back to your Aunt Em the very first day you came to this country." "But then I SHOULD not have had my wonderful brains!" cried the Scarecrow. "I might have passed my whole life in the farmer's cornfield." USAGE NOTES * _Should_ has, as its most common meaning in modern English, the sense _ought_ as in _I should go, but I don't see how I can_. However, the older sense as the subjunctive of the future indicative auxiliary, _shall_, is often used with _I_ or _we_ to indicate a more polite form than _would_: _I should like to go, but I can't_. In much speech and writing, _should_ has been replaced by _would_ In contexts of this kind, but it remains in conditional subjunctives: _should_ (never _would_) _I go, I should wear my new dress_. * (obligation): Contrast with stronger auxiliary verb _must_, which indicates that the speaker believes the subject is required to execute the predicate, or have to which indicates that the speaker believes the subject is required to execute, although speaker might disagree with the principle, and SHOULD which is merely advice - take it or leave it. * (likely): Contrast with stronger auxiliary verb _must_, which indicates that there is a logical imperative certainty that the subject will execute the predicate. * See the usage notes at _shall_. SYNONYMS * (obligation): ought ANTONYMS * (obligation): shouldn't RELATED TERMS * shoulde (archaic spelling of should) * shouldst (archaic second-person singular of should) * should've (contraction of future perfect subjunctive auxiliary phrase _should have_) TRANSLATIONS
