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: Maybe= ربما Rob-bama -Is she coming? هل هي قادمة‏?‏ -Maybe.‏ ربما قد 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: Maybe= 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 ^^ Salam~
