用法
In many Southern varieties of English, might is used in the “double modal” construction with could, as in We might could park over there. Less frequently, one hears may can and might should. These constructions are not familiar to the majority of American speakers and are best avoided in formal writing.
在许多南方英语的变异中,might 可以与 could 一起用于“双情态动词”结构中, 如我们可以把车停在那边。 还有些时候,有人会使用may can 和 might could。 对于大部分美国人来说,这种用法并不常见,在正式的书面英语中最好避免使用
