Nível Fluente › Obama's Victory Speech

MODALS "MAY" AND "MIGHT"
Dialog: "Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection."

We use the modal verbs "may" and "might" to talk about possibility. When combined with "have" + the past participle they're used to talk about possible events in the past and future.

Note that when talking about possibility these two modals are interchangeable.

FORM: MAY/MIGHT + HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE

1) MAY HAVE

  • Tania may have already left for the day. (past)
  • I think we may have missed our flight. (past)
  • By the time we arrive the concert may have already started. (future)

 

2) MIGHT HAVE

  • I might have left my cell phone in the car. (past)
  • Carl might have gone to the meeting. (past)
  • Christine might have finished the report by the time you get into the office tomorrow. (future)
