  • Umuh... Katie might have thrown it away

  • Well, she took the rubbish out of the big bins and then realized that she might have accidentally thrown the remote away in the rubbish.

    她把垃圾從大垃圾桶拿出來,然後意識到她可能不小心把遙控器丟在垃圾裡了。

  • Well, did she get the bag back out

    那她有把垃圾袋倒出來嗎?

  • Uh... no. The bins had been collected by the time she noticed it was gone

    她發現的時候垃圾桶已經被收走了。

    她可能覺得犯這種愚蠢的錯誤很尷尬。

  • You know a lot about an incident that might have been Katie's fault.

  • I ordered another one on Amazon, so it might be here on time to watch our favorite show tonight

  • Well, I might just hit you with it.

    我可能會用遙控器揍你。

  • I might.

    我有可能。

  • What does "I might" mean?

    「我有可能」是什麼意思?

  • "Might" is a modal verb that we use when talking about things that are possible, but not certain

    「可能」是一個情態動詞,我們可以在談論可能但不太確定的事使用。

  • You can use it to say you are thinking of doing something, such as, "I've got lots of energy today. I might go for a run later."

    你可以用來說你想要做某件事,像「我今天好有精神,我晚點可能會去慢跑。」

  • Or, you could add "not" after the word "might" to form the negative.

    或者是你可以加上「不會」在「可能」後面,就會變成反面。

  • Oh, I might not go for a run later. The weather looks pretty bad.

    我晚點可能不會去慢跑,天氣看起來很糟。

  • So, let's start off with things that might have happened in the past.  

    所以我們從過去可能會發生的事開始。

  • For example, if you've lost your phoneugh!

    例如,如果你手機不見了⏤啊!

  • You could say, "I might have left it on the bus."

    你可以說「我可能是把手機放在公車上了。」

  • Let's break that phrase down.

    分解一下這個詞。

  • Might have left.

    可能是放在。

  • This means that you don't know for certain that you've left your phone on the bus, but it is a possibility

    這代表你不太確定你的手機有沒有放在公車上,但是有可能。

  • To form this phrase, we use the word "might", followed by the word "have", followed by the past participle of the appropriate verb.

    要組成這個詞,我們要先用「可能」再放上「是」後面接過去式的正確動詞。

  • More examples of this could be

    更多例子可以是:

  • I might have put it in my coat pocket.

    我可能是放在外套的口袋。

  • I might have given it to my mum.

    我可能是給我媽了。

  • I might have dropped it in the park.

    我可能是丟在公園裡。

  • Next, let's move on to a possibility in the present.

    接下來,我們來看現在可能發生的事。

  • Something that could be going on right now, but you're not quite sure.

    某事現在正在進行,但你不太確定。

  • Ah! The cake might be burning!

    啊!蛋糕可能要烤焦了!

  • Excuse me, I need to get to the oven.

    不好意思,我要趕去我的爐子。

  • Why?

    為什麼?

  • Because the cake might be burning.

    因為蛋糕可能要烤焦了。

  • No, the cake's fine; I just burned some toast. These smoke alarms are so sensitive, aren't they

    不是,蛋糕沒事。我只是烤焦了一些吐司。這些煙霧警報器真靈敏,對吧?

  • So, here's how we express a possibility in the present tense

    這就是我們表達現在式可能發生的事。

  • Might be burning.

    可能要烤焦了。

  • We have the word "might" to show us that what we are about to say is a possibility, but is not certain.

    我們用「可能」表示我們要說某件可能發生但不確定的事。

  • Then we have the word "be". This is the word that tells us that the action is ongoing; it's happening right now.

    然後我們再加上「要」。這可以告訴我們這個動作現在正在進行、發生。

  • And finally, we have the verb that tells us the action with the "-ing" ending

    最後,我們在動詞後面加上「-ing」做結尾。

  • I might be walking home from work this week

    我這禮拜下班可能要走路回家。

  • Hey, we might be ordering pizza for dinner.

    我們可能要點披薩當晚餐。

  • You might be waiting a while

    你可能要等一陣子。

  • Sometimes, you might need to use an adjective in the place of the verb, in which case, there is no "-ing" ending.

    有時候你可能會需要使用一些形容詞取代動詞,這樣的話,就不會有「-ing」做結尾。

  • We might be lost

    我們可能迷路了。

  • He might be busy.

    他可能在忙。

  • They might be asleep

    他們可能睡著了。

  • Sometimes, you might need to add a pronoun as well.

    有時候你可能也會需要加上代名詞。

  • That might be my best work yet

    那可能已經是我最棒的成果了。

  • Ah! He might be your knight in shining armor.

    啊!他可能是你的救星。

  • You might be your own biggest critic.

    你可能是你自己最大的批評者。

  • Finally, let's talk about how we can discuss a possibility in the future

    最後,來看看我們可以如何討論未來可能發生的事。

  • It might snow tonight, reaching lows of -3 degrees at 2 a.m. 

    今晚可能會下雪,凌晨2點時會下降到零下3度。

  • This one is simple!

    這個比較簡單!

  • We just use the word "might" followed by the base verb that you're using to describe the action.

    我們只使用「可能」後面放原型動詞來形容你的動作。

  • Mmm... I might have a salad for lunch

    我可能會吃沙拉當午餐。

  • I might watch a film later.

    我晚點可能會看一部電影。

  • I might call my dad and ask him to look at the boiler.

    我可能會打給我爸叫他來看一下爐子。

  • Okay, so now you know how to talk about past possibilities, present possibilities, and future possibilities.

    所以你現在知道該怎麼說過去、現在和未來可能發生的事。

  • But there's another word in the English language that is often used interchangeably with the word "might", and that's "could".  

    但在英文有另外一個字很常可以跟「可能」交換使用,就是「能夠」。

  • "Could" still implies that something is a possibility, but not a certainty.

    「能夠」仍表示某件可能但不太確定的事。

  • However, "could" refers more to the ability to do something than a wish to do it.

    不過「能夠」意思是比起希望去做某事,要有更多能力去做。

  • Ugh, I'm so tired, I might just watch a film later

    我好累,我晚點可能只想看一部電影。

  • My new TV has finally arrived. I could watch a film later

    我的新電視終於到了,我晚點就能看一部電影。

  • Did you notice the difference?

    你有發現不同嗎?

  • "Might" is more to do with whether you choose to do somethingand "could" is more to do with whether you're able to.

    「可能」比較像你選擇是否去做某事,而「能夠」比較像你是否可以去做某事。

  • You can't watch a film with no TV....

    你沒有電視的話不能看電影...

  • Unless you watch it on your computer or on your phone or you go to the cinema.... Never mind.

    除非你用電腦、手機,或是去電影院看。沒關係。
