Subject: Double Modal Constructions

I am currently conducting research related to double modals and need to
contact speakers of a dialect with double modal constructions such as:

He might can go...
He might could go...
He might should go...
He might oughta go...
He might would go...

I would really appreciate it if a speaker of such constructions could
contact me and help me with grammaticality judgement tests for my research.
