    Conditional sentences

    I have lots of grammar books. One of them says that we use conditional sentences (type 1) with "If + infinitive + may / might / can / will" another book says "If + infinitive + may / will / can" What's the problem with "may and might" ? :)

    Re: Conditional sentences

    There have been several threads on the forum regarding "may/might". Have your searched for those terms?

    Re: Conditional sentences

    The best way to search for previous threads is to go to the very top of the page and click on Search ​next to 'Google Custom Search'.

    When 'Google Custom Search' appears again, type 'May/might' in the long empty box and then Search again.

    (Before the forum was 'improved' we only needed one step to do this rather than two.)

    Re: Conditional sentences

    That is a rather strange glitch that I hadn't noticed before. Anyway, in case the OP is having trouble, here's the result of searching "may or might" (just the 11,100 results!): Search - UsingEnglish.com
