: What is the difference between may be and maybe. can you please cite a few examples
Maybe or May Be? (From http://englishplus.com/grammar/00000279.htm )
Maybe, the compound word, is an adverb meaning "perhaps" or "possibly."
May be is a verb phrase meaning "might be" or "could be."
Examples: Maybe I will go out tonight.
I may be going out tonight.
