English - Etymology 1

From Old English _magan_, from Proto-Germanic _*maganą_, from Proto-Indo-European _*magʰ_, _*megʰ_. Cognate with Dutch _mogen_, Low German _mögen_, German _mögen_, Swedish _må_, Icelandic _mega_, _megum_. See also _might_. VERB MAY (_third-person singular simple present_ MAY, _present participle_ -, _simple past_ MIGHT, _past participle_ -) * (obsolete, intransitive) To be strong; to have power (over). [8th-17th c.] * (obsolete, auxiliary) To be able; can. [8th-17th c.] * 1621, Robert Burton, _The Anatomy of Melancholy_, II.3.6: But many times […] we give way to passions we MAY resist and will not. * (intransitive, poetic) To be able to go. [from 9th c.] * 1600, William Shakespeare, _A Midsummer Night's Dream_, III.3: O weary night, O long and tedious night, / Abate thy houres, shine comforts from the East, / That I MAY backe to Athens by day-light […]. * (modal auxiliary verb, defective) To have permission to, be allowed. Used in granting permission and in questions to make polite requests. [from 9th c.] _you MAY smoke outside;  MAY I sit there?_ * (modal auxiliary verb, defective) Expressing a present possibility; possibly. [from 13th c.] _he MAY be lying;  Schrödinger's cat MAY or MAY NOT be in the box_ * (subjunctive present, defective) Expressing a wish (with present subjunctive effect). [from 16th c.] _MAY you win;  MAY the weather be sunny_ * 1974, Bob Dylan, Forever Young MAY God bless and keep you always / MAY your wishes all come true / MAY you always do for others / And let others do for you / MAY you build a ladder to the stars / And climb on every rung / MAY you stay forever young * Used in modesty, courtesy, or concession, or to soften a question or remark. * Prior How old MAY Phillis be, you ask. USAGE NOTES * _MAY_ is now a defective verb. It has no infinitive, no past participle, and no future tense. Forms of _to be allowed to_ are used to replace these missing tenses. * The simple past (both indicative and subjunctive) of _MAY_ is _might_ * The present tense is negated as _MAY_ _not_, which can be contracted to _mayn't_, although this is old-fashioned; the simple past is negated as _might_ _not_, which can be contracted to _mightn't_. * _MAY_ has archaic second-person singular present indicative forms _mayest_ and _mayst_. * Usage of this word in the sense of _possibly_ is considered incorrect by some speakers and writers, as it blurs the meaning of the word in the sense _have permission to_. These speakers and writers prefer to use the word _might_ instead. * Wishes are often cast in the imperative rather than the subjunctive mood, not using the word _MAY_, as in _Have a great day!_ rather than _May you have a great day_. SYNONYMS * (have permission to): can, could, might * (possibly): could, might * (in subjunctive): might DERIVED TERMS TRANSLATIONS SEE ALSO * Appendix:English tag questions

From Old English magan, from Proto-Germanic *maganą, from Proto-Indo-European *magʰ, *megʰ. Cognate with Dutch mogen, Low German mögen, German mögen, Swedish , Icelandic mega, megum. See also might.
