Conjugaison to May

Hello
In the lesson : "Brian's bad line "
In the grammar paragraph we can read
"Bob was feeling sick yesterday he may not show up at the meeting later today"
Mays would be better than May ?

Thank you

  • Hello Jean-Luc,
    'May' is a modal auxiliary. These verbs don't work in the same way as standard verbs.

  • Hi there,
    According to me, "May" is fine in the sentence no need to use "mays".

  • No "s" in 3rd person singular with many auxiliary verbs, compare will, can, shall (you don't say "wills" or "cans"...).
