Might / Might & May / May not

We use might / might no + Verb (Infinitive without to) to say that perhaps you will or won’t do something. (Small possibility)

  • Might / might not is the same for all persons.
  • Might not is not usually contracted.

E.g. We might have English classes tomorrow. = Perhaps we will have English classes tomorrow. 

E.g. He might not come with us, I think. =  Perhaps he won’t come with us.

  • May / May not 

You can also use may / may not instead of might / might not for possibility. (Formal permissions).

E.g. We may have Spanish classes today. = We might have Spanish classes today.

E.g. I may not go to the cinema with you. = I might not go to the cinema with you.
