استفسار متكرر عند متعلمي اللغه اﻻنجليزية عن الكتابة الصحيحة لنفي الفعل، اﻻشكال التالية لكتابة النفي كلها مقبولة باختﻻف بسيط وهو أن cannot تستخدم على نطاق واسع بالرغم من أن بعض برامج تصحيح القواعد تعتبرها غير صحيحة الا انها صحيحة ومضافة في القواميس بهذه التركيبة
لو رجعنا الى قاموس اوكسفورد oxford dictionary (ارتباط خارجي) نجده يقول:

"Both the one-word form cannot and the two-word form can not are acceptable, but cannot is more common (in the Oxford English Corpus, three times as common)."

 وايضا في قاموس اخطاء شائعة في استخدام الانجليزية common errors in English usage

 للاستخدم الرسمي نستخدم التالي 
These two spellings are largely interchangeable.
can not = formal.
cannot = formal but more common.

can't = informal. استخدام غير الرسمي
“Can’t” is usually acceptable in all forms of informal writing.

VIRTUES &VICES: Battle for the Soul

Battle for the Soul

From the dawn of time it all began.
Battles waged because of we.
The spirits fight for the souls of man.
A war is raging, don't you see.

Enemy of Truth, full of pride,
Lies to man and steals his soul.
The angel of darkness has denied,
The fall of Truth is his goal.

Never ceasing he prowls about,
Looking for souls to steal.
Using tools full of doubt
To further the worlds appeal.

Deceiving many, none to young.
He searches day and night.
Deceit and lies from his tongue,
Our soul is his delight.

The forces battle, the fight goes on,
For the souls of man.
Hope is near before the dawn,
Truth is the battle plan.

Forces deployed, the Light shines bright
For all the souls to see.
On our behalf, the Truth does fight
That all men may go free.

The war is raging; lines are drawn
We all must choose a side.
Black and White, all are pawns
None can run and hide.

The Spirit of Light shines above
On all that will believe.
Grace and mercy with His love,
A gift we must receive.

C. Dakota
