comment What distinguishes the different ways to say something must be done? (E.G. しなくてはだめ、しなくてはならない、しなくてはいけない and so on)
Feet to fire, I'd say the order from most to least polite would be roughly as follows: しなきゃ, しなくちゃ, しなくては, しないと, しなければ, しなきゃダメ, しなきゃいけない, しなきゃならない, しなくちゃダメ, しなくちゃいけない, しなくちゃならない, しなくてはダメ, しなくてはいけない, しなくてはならない, しないとダメ, しないといけない, しないとならない, しなければダメ, しなければいけない, しなければならない, しなきゃいけません, しなきゃなりません, しなくちゃいけません, しなくちゃなりません, しなくてはいけません, しなくてはなりません , しないといけません, しないとなりません, しなければいけません, しなければなりません, I'm mainly asking if there are any hard and fast rules to this that I should to keep in mind on which to use in a given situation
