(pronounced kant)

Can too! Sans apostrophe, this combination of letters loses the meaning “can not.” No, this transitive verb means to tilt or set an angle. Add an “ed” to the end and it turns into an adjective describing how something is set at a slope or pitched to one side.

Example: The main galleries of the museum are one story in the air, expressed with boxes of various sizes, overhangs, and colors, all tied together with canted glazing at various angles.
