FR: They may no longer exist


Senior Member
Bonjour tout le monde,

I am not sure whether my use of the subjunctive would be right in this context. "The cities we know today may no longer exist." Would the "may" be translated as "puissent" as it is expressing uncertainty?

Merci beaucoup!

    There is no subordinate clause in your sentence to use a subjunctive form. You could say: Il se peut que les villes que nous connaissons aujourd'hui n'existent plus.
