    The Modals verb

    Hey guys,

    This time I've created this topic, because I have got several questions about the modals verbs.
    Here we go.
    So, When I write something and use the modal verb after modal verb can I use preposition?

    For example
    Does Tom can to go to club to club this night? (I know that this sentence ain't correct)
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    If I've made any mistakes please correct them

    Re: The Modals verb

    You're right - it certainly isn't correct.

    If this is an example of your original question, the answer is almost certainly no.

    We do have ought to, but not can to.

    One more question.
    But after Might, May, Could etc. Can I use preposition? I don't think so =)

    End a sentence with a full stop, not =).

    Why would you want to follow these words with a preposition?
