How would you say: " I probably won't have time". Would it be "Mwen pwobab pap gen tan." or "Mwen pap gen tan pwobab" I'm thinking the second and that you treat "pap gen tan" all as the verb, but I'm second guessing myself!

Si ou vle itilize "pwobab", se pou ou di:
Mwen pwobableman p'ap gen tan.
I probably won't have time.

oubyen ou kapab di:
Mwen ka pa gen tan.
I may not have time.

p'    |  ap          |  gen       |  tan (contracted)
Pa   | ap           |  genyen  | tan (uncontracted)
not  |   future   |  have      | time
will not have time
