First click here to read earlier replies this question.
I found these by typing might be-could be-may be in the Google Custom Search box at the top of the page.
Student or Learner
I am quite confused with these diff.
If I write it "I might get late" or I might be late - Both the sentences are same meaning.
Second thing, people are using could in the present tense - well, could is the past tense of can. So, obviously it is used in present tense rather than past tense - Isn't it?
Sometimes, writer use it in past - present as well as future tense.
Please, help me out with mentioning examples. So, I should clear from myself.
Waiting for your prompt reply.
I might get late- I would not use this to mean I might be late.
Thanks! But truly, a lot's of confusion arising when I use these into writing an article.
Please, clarify it by writing three - five examples.
Kindly, help me out here.
Basically, it is a question of the probability:
I may be late = there's a good chance I will be late
I might be late = there's a small chance I will be late
