    dare

    How do you use verb "dare"?

    E.g. "How dare he?" <= why not "dares" ?

    Could you please write some examples?

    Dare is used in two ways: as a full verb(dares to/ dared to, didn't dare to) and as an auxiliary like can or must. The two patterns are not to be mixed. Write either "whether he dares to go" or "whether he dare go" but not "whether he dares go
