    Hi Chris Kim~

    "Maybe" has many forms of similar words or meanings in Arabic, such in English you have "Perhaps". I will explain it in both Classic and Colloquial Arabic ^^

    In Classic:

    -Is she coming? هل هي قادمة‏?‏
    -Maybe.‏ ربما

    Qud or kud (u as in Bug)
    But Qud means "May more than Maybe"

    She may come or may not.
    قد تأتي و قد لا تأتي.

    In Colloquial:
    Mom-ken ممكن
    Yem-ken يمكن
    Yom-ken يمكن

    They all mean the same meaning but the diffrence is in the Accent.

    -Do you think that i did it well? -Maybe.

    Btw, rob-bama match perhaps more than maybe, and momken match maybe.

    Hope it helps ^^

    maybe in arabic :

    Robbama : ربما
    example : Robbama ana jai3 (3=ayn or ع) = Maybe i am hungry

    or it can be :

    Qad : قد
    example: la taf3al hada , qad la tastati3 = don't do that , maybe you can't

    Moumkin : ممكن
    example :
    Ahmed : hal sayati omar ? = will omar come ?
    Ali : na3am , moumkin = yes , maybe

    ممكن.يمكن. ربما
    قد يستطيع أن يأتي غدا
    He maybe ( might) be able to come tomorrow.

    ربما robba maa

    may be means ربما

    Maybe : ربًما ( Robbama ) / مُحْتَمَلٌ (Mouhtamel) / يمكن ( Yoummkin ) .
