    Any difference between 'It may not have been' and 'It may have not been'?

    Is there any difference in usage, meaning, connotation, style, etc. between those two patterns?

    'It may not have been'

    'It may have not been'

    Thanks!

    'It may not have been' ......'It may have not been'
    Yes.

    The first is normal usage; the second is not.
