English - Etymology 1

From Middle English _can_ (first and third person singular of _cunnen, connen_ (“to be able, know how”) "") from Old English _can(n)_, first and third person singular of _cunnan_ (“to know how”), from Proto-Germanic _*kunnaną_, from Proto-Indo-European, _*ǵn̥néh₃-_. Compare Dutch _kunnen_, Low German _könen_, German _können_, Danish _kunne_, Swedish _kunna_. More at canny, cunning. PRONUNCIATION * (stressed) * enPR: kăn, IPA(key): /kæn/, /kɛn/ * Rhymes: -æn * (unstressed) * IPA(key): /kən/, /kn̩/, /kɪn/ VERB CAN (_third-person singular simple present_ CAN, _present participle_ -, _simple past_ COULD, _past participle_ (obsolete except in adjective use) COUTH) * (modal auxiliary verb, defective) To know how to; to be able to. _She CAN speak English, French, and German.   I CAN play football.   CAN you remember your fifth birthday?_ * (modal auxiliary verb, defective, informal) May; to be permitted or enabled to. _You CAN go outside and play when you're finished with your homework.   CAN I use your pen?_ * (modal auxiliary verb, defective) To be possible, usually with _be_. _CAN it be Friday already?_ * (obsolete, transitive) To know. * ca.1360-1387, William Langland, _Piers Plowman_ I CAN rimes of Robin Hood. * ca.1360-1387, William Langland, _Piers Plowman_ I CAN no Latin, quod she. * William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Let the priest in surplice white, / That defunctive music CAN. USAGE NOTES * For missing forms, substitute inflected forms of _be able to_, as: * _I might be able to go._ * _I was able to go yesterday._ * _I have been able to go, since I was seven._ * _I had been able to go before._ * _I will be able to go tomorrow._ * The word could also suffices in many tenses. "I would be able to go" is equivalent to "I could go", and "I was unable to go" can be rendered "I could not go". (Unless there is a clear indication otherwise, "could _verb_" means "would be able to _verb_", but "could not _verb_" means "was/were unable to _verb_".) * The present tense negative _can not_ is often contracted to _cannot_ or _can't_. * The use of _can_ in asking permission sometimes is criticized as being impolite or incorrect by those who favour the more formal alternative _"may I...?"_. * _Can_ is sometimes used rhetorically to issue a command, placing the command in the form of a request. For instance, _"Can you hand me that pen?"_ as a polite substitution for _"Hand me that pen."_ * Some US dialects that glottalize the final /t/ in _can't_ (/kæn(ʔ)/), in order to differentiate _can't_ from _CAN_, pronounce _CAN_ as IPA(key): /kɛn/ even when stressed. SYNONYMS * be able to * may ANTONYMS * cannot * can’t SEE ALSO * Appendix:English tag questions TRANSLATIONS

From Middle English can (first and third person singular of cunnen, connen (to be able, know how) "") from Old English can(n), first and third person singular of cunnan (to know how), from Proto-Germanic *kunnaną, from Proto-Indo-European, *ǵn̥néh₃-. Compare Dutch kunnen, Low German könen, German können, Danish kunne, Swedish kunna. More at canny, cunning.
