Assunto:  How to use NOT TO
 
Mensagem:  VERB    + SB/STH  +  NOT TO DO STH
to tell           sb/sth          not to do sth:  I told him not to come
to expect     sb/sth          not to do sth: She expects him not to stay in her house ...
to warn        sb/sth          not to do sth:  I warned you not to go anywhere
to want        sb/sth          not to do sth:  I want you not to study maths

All the sentences above sound ok to me but the last one.
When it comes to the verb "to want", it sounds a little bit strange to
say "I want you not to study maths". It seems that it's far better to say
"I don't want you to study maths". Am I right about these remarks?
