Why does osaa translate as 'can'? I thought it was 'knows how to' or 'has the skill to' 'Can' has a different definition: has the ability to, but not necessarily the know- how/skill.

Verb "can" according to Merriam-webster:

a: be physically or mentally able to He can lift 200 pounds.

b: know how to She can read. --
