    Re: Modals: Logical Conclusion/Inference and Negatives

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but :

    "could have done it" (possibility)
    and
    "could NOT have done it" (logical conclusion)
    "I could have done it" = "There is a possibility that I have done it." (If something is possible, it may or may not happen. "There is a possibility that we will not have school tomorrow because of heavy snow.")
    "I could NOT have done it" = "There is NO possibility that I have done it." (If something is NOT possible (impossible), there is NO way it will happen.)

    Maybe that would help.

    On a side note, let's not forget Arnold Schwarzenneger's (spelling?) quote :

    "To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say, Don't be economic girlie men!" ľat the Republican convention
