Is this sentence natural? When two people are talking, another person says that "I don't dare to speak." 1. I don't dare to speak 2. I don't dare to talk 3. I dare not to speak. 4. I dare not to talk. Which one is natural? Thank you!!

"I don't dare speak." or "I dare not speak." But, it's a very melodramatic thing to say (either way).

It's hard to answer without more context about the situation. What is the conversation?

It is kind of hard to answer your question because it depends on what comes after the start of the sentence. For example, I might say, "I don't date talk to you about it" or "I don't dare speak his name."
