Abstract: The objective of this article is to argue that had better should be used only in connection with a particular situation, and usually in connection with a situation where there is a sense of urgency. These are exactly what we Japanese tend to overlook whenever we use this VP. This article explores how had better is defined in current dictionaries, then complement, or enlarge upon, what these dictionaries failed to mention, or neglected mentioning, and discusses the extent to which a large number of examples of had better in the COBUILD ON CD-ROM are used in connection with a particular situation and a situation that has a sense of urgency.
