Translation Tuesday: Might Could

July 15, 2014

I learned a lot from some of my native southern friends while I was in college. Including some wonderful phrases, such as this gem…”might could”

 

OK, so I am convinced this is grammatically incorrect, but people here say it a lot! It is like saying maybe, or possibly.

I might could work on that this weekend. I could possibly do that this weekend. Maybe I could do that this weekend.

Not gonna lie, I do feel this one is a little more odd that most phrases I hear. I wonder where it came from?
