‘Could’ is a modal and it’s really good
To express possibility so you’re understood.
There’s ‘might’, ‘should’ and ‘will’, to use from time to time.
It only takes a well-placed one to change a mind.
‘Should have’, ‘could have’, ‘would have’ are the past forms of the verbs.
Step away from ‘of’ as it’s something you’ve misheard.
There’s no such thing as ‘might of’, that’s a misplaced preposition.
Choose ‘have’ if you want an authoritative position.🎶😂
Sorry. That was terrible!
I said this month you’d be learning more about me, so let’s do that through some modal phrases. 👇
I might have struggled to get to grips with LinkedIn if it hadn’t been for @JohnEspirian’s #SfEP2018 talk.
I should have chosen to study Latin when it was offered to me as a lunchtime study at the age of 14, but I was too young to realise how useful it could have been.
Perhaps I ought to have come up with a Super Modal version of Ru Paul’s hit. Too niche?
I may have tried… and failed to get the word ‘fricative’ into my lyrics! 😆
I will be grateful to anyone who can rewrite my final couplet:
🎶There’s no such thing as ‘might of’, that’s the wrong fricative.
Du du du du du du du du du du…ive🎶
Can you tell me something about yourself using a modal phrase?
