“MAY” AND “MIGHT”

 Both“may” and “might” are used to


express possibility. However, they are
often used interchangeably.

How do we change this?


1. YOUR PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
 Before…
 Possibility stated in present or future = may.
 Possibility in the past = might

 Today…
 Both usage are allowed.
 Example:
 He thinks he may be going crazy.
 He thinks he might be going crazy

 I might have expected too much from her.


 I may have expected too much from her.
 2.If you have no knowledge of the past
situation at the time you are speaking,
use either “may have” or “might have”.

 Example:
 Jay thinks that his actions may have
offended Daisy.
 Jay thinks that his actions might have
offended Daisy.
3. consider the degree of possibility.
 Use may if you think there is a fair chance
that something is going to happen.
 Example:

 Tom may be surprised when he hears about


Jay’s story.
 Use might for tentative guesses.

 Example:
 The woman looks young. She might be in her
20s.
4. use might for a possibility with
condition.
Example:
 If I were in the party, I might confront
Jay.
 If you take a rest now, you might have
the energy to do your errands tomorrow.
5. If you want to express annoyance, criticism or
sarcasm, use might.

Example:
- You might want to inform me next time. I don’t
have plans of being a gate-crasher.

- Do you honestly think they might be willing to


invite us?
6. If you ask, give or refuse permission,
use may.

Example:
May I speak with Mr. Gatsby?
Yes, you may.
No, you may not.
7. In expressing wish or hope, use may.

Example:
May you find the motivation to move on
after daisy left you.
