May vs Might | English Grammar | Ask Linda!
Contrary to popular belief, may and might are not interchangeable as they have slightly different meanings. 'May' refers to a possibility and 'might' conveys more uncertainty. Let's take a look at some examples: There are dark clouds in the sky. It may rain later today. The dark clouds in the sky indicate a possibility of rain. I'm sick but I might come to the party. In this example, the speaker is does not feel well and he is uncertain about attending the party. So, there is only a slight chance that he might actually go to the party. Therefore, always look out for the context and choose the right word based upon the level of possibility. That's it for today. See you next time.
