Homework Help: English

Posted by Jack on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 at 7:43pm.

Is there a way to express the verb 'must' such that it means the subject does not have to do something? See:

I must go. -- I have to go.
I must not go. -- I have to avoid going.

I can't think of any 'must' equivalent to "I do not have to go". Is it conventional to use 'must not' here?
