    Talking 13-may or might

    Dear all
    Hello
    I wanna know the difference between (may)and(might) in the name of god the compassionate the merciful meaning . For example:
    A.You may be wright .
    B.You might be wright .

    OR
    A.The attorney may be late .
    B.The attorney might be late .
    What's their exact difference in the name of god the compassionate the merciful meaning and usage?
    Thanks a million
    Matilda
