comment Is “might could” a correct construct?
@JanusBahsJacquet: Given the fact that dialects of English do have modal stacking, which speakers use with great ease, despite the fact that the modal verbs lack an infinitive form, I don't see why you would consider the existence of infinitive forms for modal verbs to be a crucial distinction that makes German irrelevant to the discussion. I think it is perfectly relevant to mention that modal stacking is actually part of the standard in another language, even if they aren't identical in every conceivable way.
