Assunto:  Re: 'Need' as a modal
 
Mensagem:  Hey Pat He means that sometimes one finds expressions like 'He needn't do it' instead of 'he doesn't need to do it'. The former is an example of 'need' as a modal verb. I think that Mike Robertson can give us a figure on what is going on with our friend 'need' in his village. José Roberto
