I am doing English with Laurence Horn's remarks.

My usual explanation of 'cannot' is that of a blackbird vs. a black bird.

The practical explanation is about the emphasis on 'not'. I can not vs I

I have another English language net group that is questioning 'cannot'. I do
not have the ability to instruct no-ness.
