Bonjour,
quelle est la différence entre to look after somebody et to take care of somebody? Quelle est la différence entre to look for et to seek?
Beh c'est exactement la même réponse qu'à votre question! Il n' y en a pas!
Les deux signifies "peut-être"!

Hello

maybe / perhaps

In British English both of these adverbs are still very commonly used and have the same meaning. You use them to say that something is possible or may be true, but you are not certain.

They can be used interchangeably but of the two, maybe is very appropriate for more informal contexts and perhaps is used in more formal situations. Compare the following:

- I can't find it anywhere. ~ Perhaps / Maybe you threw it away.
- How old is Jane? ~ I don't really know. In her twenties, certainly. Twenty-five, maybe.
- There were perhaps as many as fifty badly wounded soldiers in the hospital.
- Perhaps I should explain to you how they came to be there.
St Paul's Cathedral is perhaps one of London's most prominent landmarks.
- Why don't you join us for the New Year celebrations? ~ Yeah, perhaps / maybe I will.
- Maybe you are right! Perhaps it would be best if you didn't invite Johnnie

Note that perhaps is pronounced 'praps'. Note also from the above illustrations that perhaps and maybe can be used to refer to past, present or future events.

Hello

Look after (somebody, something or yourself) is used more in British English and take care of in American English.
Care for and take care of mean the same as look after. Care for is more formal.

Example:
- She has a new job, caring for elderly patients.
- When his wife got sick, he left work so that he could take care of her.
- He was sixteen , and he felt that he was old enough to look after himself.
- Who's looking after the apartment while Amy and Ben are away?
- When he was in hospital, the nurses looked after him very well.

"Maybe" and "perhaps" are completely interchangeable. While one or the other might be preferred in a certain context, there's no error in using the "unpreferred" one.

I thought that perhaps was used when the expected answer was YES and maybe when the expected answer was NO

An interesting thought, fred, but I'm not sure that it works in every case. Perhaps () it's one factor out of several.
