Assunto:  CAN'T TAKE vs. CAN TAKE
 
Mensagem:  I notice this so many times in the movies: "what?"

Well there are some good informations, but I'll try explane my side (my listening is very bad I think, else in portuguese I make some misunderstands, so many in songs)

For my low-skilled ears, "can" have a dense emphasis to the "n":

Can → "Cann" / "Quene"
Can you? → "Cany-u?" / "Queniú?" rss

And "can't", sometimes that I cannot hear "t", sounds like the portuguese nasalized vowels, becouse it have no "link" with the folloing word:

Can't → "Cant" / "Quent" / "Quem"
Can't you? → "Canty-ú?" / "Quentiu?" ou "Quem iú?"

But the context is everytime the best way ^^
