    Is there any difference at all between 'cannot' and 'can not'?

    I remember someone has distinguished between the two while some said they are interchangeable.

    What do you think?

    Thanks a lot.

    Click here to read many previous answers to this question.

    I found that by typing can not/cannot in the Google Custom Search box at the top of the page.
