"Мне тоже нравится тихая музыка."

Translation:I like soft music, too.

It seems to me that the given English translation could be read two ways: EITHER THAT: I, in addition to other people, like quiet music OR THAT: I like quiet music, in addition to, say, loud music. My translation - "I too like quiet music." - has the first of these two meanings. It was not accepted. My question is, can the Russian sentence have both meanings?

Either way, yours should be accepted. I think тоже is used here to represent the preceding мне, so as in "I, in addition to others, like quiet music." I'm not sure, though. Could a native Russian speaker weigh in?

The Russian can have both meanings. I've added your translation.

Тоже refers to an additional subject, whereas также adds a predicate. In this case, despite the grammatical subject of the sentence being тихая музика (because of the construction of the verb нравиться, which is different from English), it is understood that мне is the subject being added with тоже. To add quiet music to loud music among your likes, use также. i.e. Тебе нравится тихая музика. Мне тоже нравится тихая музика. vs. Мне нравится громкая музика. Мне также нравится тихая музика.

How is "I also like quiet music" wrong, exactly?

November 8, 2015


In no way. Which is why it is accepted.

No, wasn't accepted for me either - have just reported.

November 12, 2015


Me neither.

I too like quiet music isn't accepted. It should be.

I agree, Reaper of Orphans.

I used the "enjoy" instead of like but I was signaled out.

Why is the accusitive case not used?

With нравиться, the object liked is the grammatical subject. The English verb "seem" behaves similarly.

My translation was not acceoted - I loke the quiet music too - surely it is correct ..? The word The was given as an option stsrting confusingly woth s capital letter ...but still!
