  1. First up: a question about a conditional verb.
  2. Madam Grammar noted that she might have to leave the chat because of a tornado warning (later lifted), but she used that notice to help answer the "will" vs. "would" question.

  3. This started a conversation on a couple of other word pairs. Like "may" vs. "might."
  4. "Done" vs. "finished" and "anyone" vs. "anybody."
