Unit 5 Grammar: Modal Verbs

Θυμηθείτε! Τα modals (must, can, could, should, …) ακολουθούνται πάντα από ένα άλλο ρήμα στην αρχική του μορφή (χωρίς να κλίνεται!)
π.χ.: John must study all the vocabulary.
Mark should eat all her food!
Maria may come to the party, but I’m not sure.
MUST = πρέπει
MUSTN’T = απαγορεύεται
CAN = μπορώ
COULD = μπορούσα
SHOULD = θα έπρεπε (συμβουλή!!)
SHOULDN’T = δεν θά’ πρεπε (συμβουλή ή κριτική!)
MAY = ίσως, πιθανόν
 
Το SHOULD (θα έπρεπε) / SHOULDN’T  (δεν θα έπρεπε) τα χρησιμοποιούμε για συμβουλές!
To MAY (ίσως) χρησιμοποιείται όταν δεν είμαστε σίγουροι για κάτι.
