Should vs. Ought to

Bert Cappelle UGent and Gert De Sutter UGent (2010) Distinctions in English grammar, offered to Renaat Declerck. p.92-126
abstract
The seeds of this text were sown within Renaat Declerck’s ambitious but unfinished project on mood and modality. At one project work meeting in 2006, one of us (B.C.) presented some quantitative findings about significant factors in the choice between should and ought to, based on a fairly restricted data set (150 examples of each modal verb). A mutual comparison of the contributions of these factors was lacking, and this paper is an attempt to provide this. The idea of using an extensive set of parameters to investigate the distribution of modal auxiliaries lay at the heart of the modality project as formulated in its proposal. In this sense, the present paper is in the spirit of Declerck’s research aims.
