What does om mean?
I see om in a lot of phrases. One was Jag alaskar om mannen. or something like that, but it translated to i love/like the man. i thought mannen already has a the before it. sorry if im wrong, but i am very new and trying to learn
"Om" can be used in different ways. This should answer your question :)
There's also 'om tycker' which the Swedish teacher didn't seem to cover and that means to like, correct? Ca you say: jag tycker om dej? As in "I like you?" or jag tycker om öl? Thanks.
You add "om" to "tykcer" to get "tycker om" meaning 'to like'. Tycker on it's own means 'to think'. You can also use "gillar" but it's more casual.
So yeah you can say them.
1 - Jag tycker om dig / Jag gillar dig = I like you.
2 - Jag tycker om öl / Jag gillar öl= I like beer.
Yes, Jag tycker om dig = I like you. Jag tycker om .... nånting = I like ....whatever. As far as I understand it, it means the same as 'gillar'.
Thanks, but the link no longer works. The good news is they archived it here:
On that page there's a link to download a ZIP file with that and other lessons in a bunch of HTML files.
But just to excerpt it a little:
As we soon will see, “om” can be used as a conjunction, a preposition or a particle in a particle verb (“partikelverb” in Swedish).
(edited for brevity)
Last but not least ”om” is part of the particle verb ”tycker om” as in “gillar” or in English, “like”.
Jag tycker om dig.
(I like you.)
Have fun learning Swedish!
