So, I have to examples:
1-Her mother used to beat her sister.
2-Her mother would beat her sister.
1-the speaker disapproves this fact, as "used to" expresses most of the time bad habits.
2-The speaker do not think that is a bad thing.
Could you please tell me if is it correct?
I have another question, as a native speaker, do you use this structure in more formal spoken and written English, I have read that is rarely used.
*...used not to ...........
*Used ....to ...?.
Have a nice day,
Thank you in advance
