Mustn't vs. Don't have to

Added by Tomasz H. 13 January 2015 in category: English, Lexicon

Mustn't

Meaning:

It is prohibited, it is not allowed. It is important that you do not do something.

Examples:

You mustn't drink that = It is forbidden to drink that

You mustn't tell him = Do not tell him, you are not allowed to tell him

 

Don't have to

Meaning:

There is no obligation, you are not required to do something (if you don't want it).

Examples:

You don't have to drink that = You can drink that if you want, but it' not obligatory

You don't have to tell him = You can tell him, but it's not necessary.
