    General rule of thumb

    may be functions as verb.
    It comes after the subject:

    It may be time for dinner. (subject = It)

    maybe functions as an adverb.
    a) It comes at the beginning of a sentence:

    Maybe it is time for dinner.

    b) It comes at the end of a sentence:

    It is time for dinner, maybe.

    :D

    criminal: Someone who has committed (or been legally convicted of) a crime



    There are lots of things we do, but a mistake is something we make. Try: "I'll be sorry if I make any mistakes."
    Thanks :)


    Well, you're somebody's baby, aren't you? :wink:

    Good point.


    But I do have lots of angles. :wink:
    Angel and Angle....

    Say: "I don't think you are an angel?" (Why not? :wink: - )
    Because I asked angles about this and they said you don't belong to them. :P :P

    There are a lot more maybes at that website. You might find it interesting to peruse it.
    I will try to read them when I will get time.
    Hope you are fine and creating poetry.
    Talk to you later



    Hey, it's good to hear from you again. It's a pleasant surprise. :D

    Thanks ;)

    Did you mention poetry? :wink:

    If you get the time you might like to read some of the stuff in the Poetry and Writing and Songs folder, including this:

    Brief Verse (Couplets)
    http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1579

    Feel free to post one of your favorite poems.

    Later.

    :)
