Als ich kan.

The devise of Jan van Eyck was "als ich kan". But I can't understanf, which language it is? In germany it must be "als ich kann", in nederlands "als ik kan".?

Ich kann nicht verstehen, mit welchem Sprache ist die Devise von Kan van Eyck "als ich kan" geschaffnet worden. In deutsch das soll "als ich kann" sein, in Nederlans und auch in Niedersachsen "ik". Wer weiss?
