THE MODAL ‘MUST’: POSITIVE LOGICAL ASSUMPTIONS

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, readers! I hope you are having a wonderful week. 

We are looking at a 4th use of the modal MUST: POSITIVE LOGICAL ASSUMPTIONS. We use this formula:

MUST + have + past participle

Example 1: My neighbour got home at midnight. He must have worked late. 

Example 2: You must have read a lot for your PhD. 

Example 3: Tim graduated in 2015, so he must have gone to school with my son. 

This is very similar to yesterday's use of the modal MUST for deductions. The difference is that with POSITIVE LOGICAL ASSUMPTIONS, we are focusing on the past. With deductions, we are focusing more on the present. 

That's it for today. Thank you for reading!

THE MODAL ‘MUST’: DEDUCTION

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, readers!

We are continuing our week about the modal verb MUST. Today we are looking at using MUST for DEDUCTION. DEDUCTION is when we are certain about something because of the information we have. 

Example 1: You ran a marathon yesterday? You must be so tired!

Example 2: His sister went to culinary school, so she must be a great cook. 

Example 3: My dad's car is in the garage. He must be home. 

Example 4: It's snowing outside. It must be really cold. 

Example 5: I didn't see Jim at work. He must be sick.

Tomorrow, we will look at another use of MUST. See you then!

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you enjoyed your long weekend (if you had one). 

This week we are looking at the modal MUST and the many ways we use this modal. Today we will look at MUST FOR OBLIGATION AND NECESSITY.

Example 1: All passengers must wear a seatbelt. 

Example 2: My dog must always go on two walks a day. 

Example 3: You must always drive the speed limit. 

We will look at another use for MUST tomorrow. Until then, have a great day and thank you for reading!
