A: Are you sure she also likes him?
B: Yeah! but I maybe wrong on this.

- I think "but I AM maybe wrong on this" is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    Neither is correct, namlan. The right way to say this is: "I may be wrong on this."

    "Maybe" and "may be" sound the same, but they do not mean the same thing.

    I think that you cured "B" with " . . . but I am maybe wrong on this." To make the point more clear, you could explain, " . . . but I am perhaps wrong on this."
