Interested in Language
I would like to rephrase the following sentence using a different modal or expression.
'You should always have a good breakfast.' Can I say?
'You ought to always have a good breakfast' or should it be
'You always ought to have a good breakfast.' Are either of these answers correct? If not, can you please suggest an alternative answer.
Both of your suggestions are possible. I'd use 'should', but, if I were to use 'ought to' in this sentence, I'd probably use the second, or "You ought to always have ...". You will note that I have nothing against split infinitives.
