Student or Learner
Yesterday, Henz988 raised an issue I am also interested in, but he hasn't got the answer to one of his questions yet.
This is what I want to express:
Perhaps he will have arrived by 5 o'clock tomorrow.
(Perhaps not, I don't know.)
Can I express the same meaning with a perfect modal by saying:
He may have arrived by 5 o'clock tomorrow.
Is it okay to say a sentence like this?
Or should I simply say: He may arrive by five o'clock tomorrow.
So, can I use a perfect modal to imply that an action may / might / should be completed before another action in the future?
I think I'll have further questions on the issue, but first, can I get feedback from native speakers on this, please?
Thanks, a lot.
