Idioms: Don't you dare! (spoken) used to tell sb strongly not to do sth: 'I'll tell her about it.' 'Don't you dare!' + Don't you dare say anything to anybody.
How dare you, etc. used to show that you are angry about sth that sb has done: How dare you talk to me like that? + How dare she imply that I was lying?
I dare say (also I daresay especially in BrE) used when you are saying that sth is probable: I dare say you know about it already.

Dare (sense 1) usually forms negatives and questions like an ordinary verb and is followed by an infinitive with to. It is most common in the negative: I didn't dare to ask. + He won't dare to break his promise. + You told him? How did you dare? + I hardly dared to hope she'd remember me. In positive sentences a phrase like not be afraid is often used instead:
She wasn't afraid (= she dared) to tell him the truth.

It can also be used like a modal verb especially in present tense negative forms in BrE, and is fol-lowed by an infinitive without to: I daren't tell her the truth.
In spoken English, the forms of the ordinary verb are often used with an infinitve without to: Don't you dare tell her what I said! + I didn't dare look at him.
