English term or phrase:could versus might
Sometimes, could and might are used to indicate possibility. I want to know whether these are interchangeable or is there any subtle difference in their usage in this context. For example:
Be careful, it could harm you.
Be careful, it might harm you.
Whether we can use any of these in the above context? Thanks a lot in advance.
