I opened this thread in the italian-english forum, they adviced me to turn to this forum. (I myself am danish) Basically, I never really understood what the difference is between "may" and "might". They may both(/they might both) be used to ásk/give permission.. they can both be used to express uncertainty.. Is might more formal, when asking a permission for something, then? Could anyone enlighten me at as to this? Clearly they are used interchangably in many curcumstances, so the question is: is there any difference?? Thank you very much!
