Could this sentence also be "mathematics must not be boring"?


The problem here springs from an idiosyncrasy of the English language, namely that "must not" is not the negation of "must".

Compare the sentences: 1 You mustn't throw stones. 2 It is not true that you must throw stones.

Polish on the other hand treats the negation of musieć "correctly" (in agreement with propositioal logic).


What about "Mathematics need not to be boring."?
