comment Wie sagt man “You should not have gone to work” auf Deutsch?
@mthomas: Good point; I was thinking that Du sollst nicht gehen would translate as You shall not go. But sollst and solltest don’t directly correspond to the English shall and should.

comment Wie sagt man “You should not have gone to work” auf Deutsch?
@Em1: Doesn’t Du solltest nicht gehen translate as You should not go? That has a different meaning from You should not have gone. (With the former, you haven’t yet gone and the advice is that it will be better if you don’t; with the latter, you did go but it would have been better if you hadn’t.)
