What is the difference between 'may have heard versus probably have heard' ?
for example :
He 'may have heard' the rumour
He 'probably have heard' the rumour
Is there any meaning difference ?

He 'probably has heard' the rumour. With an adverb like "probably", say 'He probably has...'.
Is there any difference in meaning? (is much better)
'may" means it's possible. "probably" means a more than 50% likelihood.
