問兩題有關may的英文題..

1.Those students may not leave the school unless the teacher let them go.

想請問上句中的 may 可以用 might 代替嗎?

2.You may leave as long as you tell me the true.

可以告訴我這句的中文意思嗎?

感激不盡...orz

    1.Those students may not leave the school unless the teacher let them go.想請問上句中的 may 可以用 might 代替嗎?可以...might本來 也是可能的意思,不過程度較may低。用法請參照底下:1. may 表示許可、推測或可能性等,但might有委婉的意思,可能性比  may小。He may come.他也許會來。2. may表示許可,但might更客氣,口語中可以can,could代替。May I come in?我可以進來嗎?2.You may leave as long as you tell me the true(應該改成truth).  你可以離開,只要你告訴我實話。

    Those students may not leave the school unless the teacher let them go.

    上句中的 may 不可以用 might 代替. 

    may 表示推測或可能性時, 可以用 might 代替.

    但是

    may not在上句中表示 “禁止”(因為有個條件”unless the teacher let them go”)

    當 may not 表示 “不許可, 禁止” 時, 只可以用 can not代替

    You may leave as long as you tell me the true.

    Answer: 只要你告訴我真相,你(就)可以走

    ( You may like to change “true” for “truth” ‘cause the + Noun.)

    A1:不行因為 may 跟 might的意思不同

    A2:只要你告訴我真相,你就可以走
