This is just a detail, and I might be wrong since I'm not a native
English speaker. The MCS message I'm talking about is this one:

error CS0031: Can not convert the expression to a boolean

Shouldn't this be "Cannot convert ..."? Microsoft .NET [1] uses "cannot"
it seems. According to the Oxford dictionary [2] "cannot" is used more
frequently. And Google suggests a correction too ("Did you mean...")

Kind regards,
