This is a excerpt from Le Morte d'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, and I want to know the exact meaning of might regarding the context. Some say by might we mean:
being allowed to
and some say it means:
being able to
Of course we are all aware of the first meaning but relating to the later one, I couldn't find anything related. Here is the excerpt:
And thereupon Isoud fell down in a swoon, and so lay a great while And when she might speak she said: My lord Sir Tristram, blessed be God ye have your life, and now I am sure ye shall be discovered by this little brachet, for she will never leave you.
