Może być


Senior Member
If you ask someone a question such as, Podoba Ci się ta koszula?, and he answers, Może być, is he trying to say no politely?

    Either this or he doesn't really know what to say. "Może być" means something like "Will do" in this context so you can judge by yourself. :)

    I would say it, when the t-shirt doesn't bother/disturb me.
    Depending on the intonation it can be polite "no", or that
    it's ok for me to wear that, though I don't find it particular,
    or just don't have strength to say anything else ;)

    I would say that depending on the intonation, "może być" goes from polite "no" to "pretty nice". I would also say something like
    -You think this shirt will do? (Myslisz, ze może być ta koszula?)
    -Definitely! (zdecydowanie może być)
