    Re: may,might,can could,shall and should

    Hi

    These are modal verbs but their level of modailty is different

    1) may and might
    (2) can and could
    (3) shall and should

    May and might are low modality

    Can is medium, could is low modality

    Shall is high modality, should is medium

    For example
    I shall go to the shops
    I should go to the shops
    Which one sounds more convincing?

    I can go to the shops
    I could go to the shops

    I hope this helps
