    Default difference between cannot and can not.

    I wonder if there is any difference between 'cannot' and 'can not'.
    'can not' is more used in particular countries? or which is more formal?
    When someone ask me something like that which is familiar but hard to explain obviously, I get embarrassed. Please help me with this question.

    I think 'cannot' is stylistically marked as formal.
