This discussion clarifies the difference between "may" and "might".
Now my question to the more knowledgeable native English speakers:
Is any of them preferred over the other in every-day speech? Maybe a more practical rule about when to use one and when the other? Thank you.
Background: I just realized recently that I forgot the existence of the word "might". Trying to bring it back to my vocabulary, I do not want to fall into the other extreme (using it too much).
