  • Mood:

slightly obscure latin construction...

How does one express "must" or "should" in classical Latin? (ex. "You musn't watch that" or "You should do this".) For some reason, I can't seem to remember. Is it one of the things that's expressed with the subjunctive (if so, what's the construction/clause called and how is it formed?), or is it something else entirely?
