I have the following sentence:
(...) these dates are subject to change.
Should that, instead, read:
(...) these dates may be subject to change.
Are only one of these usages correct? I want it to be interpreted to mean that the dates may change. (but they may not necessarily change)
My guess is that we're working with the following definition of
subject (from dictionary.com):
19: (Adjective) open or exposed (usually followed by to): subject to ridicule.
I think that would make the first quote valid. But how about the second?
