should and ought to
What is the difference in usage of should and ought to?
Would it possible for you to give sentences that start with "So" and "Such?"Please... At least 3 sentences for the better understanding of the sentence structure
Should is used to express 'moral duty', advice, moral obligation, general expectation, condition:
Work hard so that you should pass.
Should it rain, we shall not go out.
Ought to is used in almost same sense like should but it is prefered in sense of social or relifious beliefs.
We ought to obey our religious customs.
Should is used when the emphasis comes on the subject.
You are the leader so you should follow all the rules set for the organisation.
Being responsible citizens we ought to abide by the law.
Hope it helps.

I've always believed that "You SHOULD" makes for a stronger stress than "You OUGHT". I know that if someone tells me that I should do something I will feel more inclined to do it. 'Ought', to me, has a more... 'Well, if you want to you could...' undertone.
