Be won to spoil the castle of his health!

Can \Can\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Canned}; p. pr. & vb. n.
{Canning}.]
To preserve by putting in sealed cans [U. S.] "Canned meats"
--W. D. Howells.
[1913 Webster]

{Canned goods}, a general name for fruit, vegetables, meat,
or fish, preserved in hermetically sealed cans.


Can \Can\, v. t. & i.

Note: [The transitive use is obsolete.] [imp. {Could}.] [OE.
cunnen, cannen (1st sing. pres. I can), to know, know
how, be able, AS. cunnan, 1st sing. pres. ic cann or
can, pl. cunnon, 1st sing. imp. c[=u][eth]e (for
cun[eth]e); p. p. c[=u][eth] (for cun[eth]); akin to
OS. Kunnan, D. Kunnen, OHG. chunnan, G. k["o]nnen,
Icel. kunna, Goth. Kunnan, and E. ken to know. The
present tense I can (AS. ic cann) was originally a
preterit, meaning I have known or Learned, and hence I
know, know how. [root]45. See {Ken}, {Know}; cf. {Con},
{Cunning}, {Uncouth}.]
1. To know; to understand. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

I can rimes of Robin Hood. --Piers
Plowman.
[1913 Webster]

I can no Latin, quod she. --Piers
Plowman.
[1913 Webster]

Let the priest in surplice white,
That defunctive music can. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

2. To be able to do; to have power or influence. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

The will of Him who all things can. --Milton.
[1913 Webster]

For what, alas, can these my single arms? --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

M[ae]c[ae]nas and Agrippa, who can most with
C[ae]sar. --Beau. & Fl.
[1913 Webster]

3. To be able; -- followed by an infinitive without to; as, I
can go, but do not wish to.

Syn: {Can but}, {Can not but}. It is an error to use the
former of these phrases where the sens requires the
latter. If we say, "I can but perish if I go," "But"
means only, and denotes that this is all or the worst
that can happen. When the apostle Peter said. "We can
not but speak of the things which we have seen and
heard." he referred to a moral constraint or necessety
which rested upon him and his associates; and the
meaning was, We cannot help speaking, We cannot refrain
from speaking. This idea of a moral necessity or
constraint is of frequent occurrence, and is also
expressed in the phrase, "I can not help it." Thus we
say. "I can not but hope," "I can not but believe," "I
can not but think," "I can not but remark," etc., in
cases in which it would be an error to use the phrase
can but.
[1913 Webster]

Yet he could not but acknowledge to himself that
there was something calculated to impress awe, . .
. in the sudden appearances and vanishings . . .
of the masque --De Quincey.
[1913 Webster]

Tom felt that this was a rebuff for him, and could
not but understand it as a left-handed hit at his
employer. --Dickens.
[1913 Webster]


Can \Can\ (k[a^]n),
an obs. form of began, imp. & p. p. of {Begin}, sometimes
used in old poetry.

Note: [See {Gan}.]
[1913 Webster]

With gentle words he can faile gree. --Spenser.
[1913 Webster]


Can \Can\, n. [OE. & AS. canne; akin to D. Kan, G. Kanne, OHG.
channa, Sw. Kanna, Dan. kande.]
1. A drinking cup; a vessel for holding liquids. --[Shak. ]
[1913 Webster]

Fill the cup and fill can,
Have a rouse before the morn. --Tennyson.
[1913 Webster]

2. A vessel or case of tinned iron or of sheet metal, of
various forms, but usually cylindrical; as, a can of
tomatoes; an oil can; a milk can.
[1913 Webster]

Note: A can may be a cylinder open at the top, as for
receiving the sliver from a carding machine, or with a
removable cover or stopper, as for holding tea, spices,
milk, oysters, etc., or with handle and spout, as for
holding oil, or hermetically sealed, in canning meats,
fruits, etc. The name is also sometimes given to the
small glass or earthenware jar used in canning.
[1913 Webster]
