comment Is it incorrect to say, “Why cannot…?”
@DavidSchwartz: Those just sound incorrect in the same way "Why cannot you do this?" does. If I had thought of those examples, I would ask similar questions for them.

comment Origin of distinction between “one” and “a/an”?
@BarrieEngland: I don't really see the difference between "one lot" and "a lot." Presumably, one seems more specific than the other; however, I interpret both to be equally vague, as it is the word "lot" the carries quantitative ambiguity.

comment Origin of distinction between “one” and “a/an”?
@RiMMER╬Ę: I may be wrong, but I think you are comparing the German equivalents of "a/an" and "the."
