comment Does 'pinch' have an opposite?
@Frank although I'd agree in a pinch, sadly I would not rule out Apple patenting this innovation :)

comment What is the infinitive of “can”?
You're basically arguing that everybody is wrong because another, related, language has infinitives? I mean, we have "kunnen" in Dutch too, but I don't think it's relevant, though it's clearly related.

comment What is the infinitive of “can”?
Yup. And wikipedia was quick to suggest the periphrasis. Anyways, I'd been using that all my life, so that was also a bit of a moot point.

Sorry, but this seems both inaccurate and not adding much to the conversation. Perhaps you wanted to comment instead. (I think you have to earn some reputation to be able to comment)

+1 for the humour indeed. I accepted the other answer based on timestamp. Thanks for helping.

@fluffy I do think you might want to file that as a separate question :) (Perhaps you are referring to the sense of bewilderment that you never actually noticed the defectiveness of these verbs before? The shock and detached feeling, as if suddenly a floor was ripped away from under your feet and you gaze into the abyss? Or maybe just "how can people be so ignorant". In that case, let me give a hint: non-native speakers)
