Title: Diapositiva 1

J r y e a d e r A
Los modales son un grupo de verbos funcionan de
manera diferente al resto.
  • Son invariables, por lo que tienen una misma
    forma para todas las personas.
  • No necesitan do para formar la negativa ni la
  • Siempre van seguidos de un verbo en la forma
  • No tienen infinitivo, participio, futuro, formas
    ing, ni tiempos compuestos.
  • Los modales que vamos a estudiar son
  • Be able to, - can , - cant , - could , - dont
    have to, - have to, - may, - might ,
  • must , - mustnt , - need to , - neednt , -
    ought to , - should , - would.

  • Be able to y have to no comparten todas las
    características de los modales,
  • pero sí algunos de sus usos ( habilidad,
  • Can , además de expresar habilidad o capacidad,
    se utiliza para dar y pedir permiso,
  • hacer peticiones e indicar posibilidad.
  • Todos estos usos en negativa se expresan con
    cant, el cual significa, además
  • deducción o certeza de que algo es imposible.
  • Can sólo puede usarse en presente, así que en
    el resto de tiempos verbales usamos
  • be able to.
  • Could se emplea para indicar habilidad en
    pasado, hacer peticiones y sugerencias
  • mas formales que con can, y expresa una
    posibilidad mas remota que con can.
  • May y might expresan posibilidad ( mas
    remota con might ) de que ocurra algo.
  • May también se usa para hacer peticiones mas
    formales que con can.

  • Must y have to expresan obligación o
    necesidad, pero con must la obligación
  • es mas fuerte ( como cuando la impone la ley
    o alguien de autoridad).
  • Además expresan una conclusión lógica (deber
    de, tener que)
  • Must sólo puede usarse en presente, así que en
    el resto de tiempos verbales
  • usamos have to.
  • Need to no es un modal. Así que necesita do
    en la negativa e interrogativa y
  • puede emplearse en cualquier tiempo porque se
  • Neednt si es un modal y solo se usa en
    negativa para indicar que no hay
  • obligación o necesidad de hacer algo ( igual
    que have to)
  • Mustnt indica prohibición, en cambio dont
    have to significa no tener por qué,
  • es decir, ausencia de prohibición y de
    necesidad ( igual que neednt)
  • Should y ought to se usan para dar consejo y
    hacer recomendaciones.
  • Should es el mas usado. Ought to no se usa
    en negativa e interrogativa.

Vamos a ver todo esto más claro si los
clasificamos por sus usos ( obligación,
(tengo la obligación de , debo, tengo que )
  • Must They
    must wear a uniform
  • Have to (no modal) I have to finish
    this exercise

(no hace falta que)

  • Dont have to (no modal) You dont have
    to come if you dont want to.

  • She doesnt have to come if she doesnt
    want to.

  • Mustnt You mustnt
    smoke at school

( tienes que / es necesario )
  • need to ( no modal) You need to

(Dar consejos , hacer recomendaciones)
  • Should You should go to
    see a doctor
  • Shouldnt You shouldnt
    worry about your marks
  • Ought to You ought to study

Ten en
cuenta que Have to must tienen un
significado similar (obligación / debo, tengo que
) Pero Dont have to mustnt tienen un
significado muy diferente. ( Dont have to no
obligación / no hace falta que Mustnt
prohibition / no puedes )
( se , puedo , soy capaz de )
