    Hi 5jj,
    Hmm, please explain what the difference is

    a) I don't have the intention to go.
    b) I have the intention to not-go.

    in (a), you simply do not have an intention; in (b), you do have an intention.

    Hi 5jj,
    Wow! I had to translate it to Spanish to make sure I get the picture.

    (a) You do not have an intention to go.
    (b) You do have an intention to not-go.

    Thanks a lot for every reply.
