Maybe Vs May be

Welcome back everybody! Seperti yang sudah kita bahas sebelumnya di Bahasa Inggris kita punya yang namanya modal auxiliaries verb atau yang lebih dikenal dengan modal verb (fyi, bagi yang belum baca materi full mengenai modal, silahkan di scroll postingan Homie English yang sebelumnya ya).

maybe-homienglish.co.id

Jadi, kali ini kita mau membahas salah satu materi yang masih berkaitan dengan modal, yaitu perbedaan maybe dan may be. So, sebenarnya may be (dua kata) dan maybe (satu kata) itu berbeda fungsinya di dalam kalimat. Biar lebih paham kamu bisa lihat contoh berikut ini ya:

A: “Will you come tomorrow?”
B: “Maybe I will come tomorrow”

A: “Where will you be tomorrow?”
B: “I may be here tomorrow”

Nah, berdasarkan contoh diatas bisa disimpulkan bahwa:

  1. Maybe (satu kata) berfungsi sebagai adverb (kata keterangan), yang mana biasanya kata maybe ini terletak sebelum subject.
  2. May be (dua kata) berfungsi sebagai verb (kata kerja) di dalam sebuah kalimat, yang mana biasanya terletak setelah subject.

Yuk, simak contoh lainnya ya biar makin paham!

  • Maybe she will be mad at you if you don’t call her back.
  • We may be hungry tonight.
  • Maybe it will rain tomorrow.
  • It is extremely cold today. Maybe the weather has changed.
  • I may be at the office tomorrow.

Now, let’s practice on it guys! Please fill the blank space below with may be or maybe!
