Might have/Might has when 'have' = 'possession'

Post by DmitryL » Sat Apr 28, 2012 9:52 pm

Hi!
I'm aware of the modal character of 'might' verb and that it should be used with 'have' instead of 'has'. But shouldn't I place the 'has' form when I use 'have' in 'possession' meaning?
For example: ' I want to be his friend in spite of all the downsides he might has (might have?)'.

Thank you in advance,

Sincerely,

Dmitry

'Modal auxiliary verbs may sound difficult but in fact they're easy. They are invariable (no conjugation). And the main verb is always the "bare infinitive" (the infinitive without "to").'

I want to be his friend in spite of all the downsides he might have. :ok:
