Hints don’t appear for me under “Permen”.
:-) Hihi... well, now you know "permen" means "candy".
Here is another type of candy :
"permen karet" = "chewing gum"
If translated literally, then it means "rubber candy"
'candy' is american english.
'lollies' should also be an acceptable translation for 'permen'.
I have reported this with the correct answer of 'I like sweets' because 'candy' is American English.
Lollies are specifically sweets on sticks.
hi, that is certainly a good addition to the database.
however, in australia, ‘lollies’ (usually plural) is the broad term that basically describes the bite-sized pieces of non-baked confectionary, including boiled sweets/ hard candy, chewy lollies (jubes), liquorice, even chocolate, and also included are lollipops (which are the ones you mention specifically on sticks).
i think it is british english that uses the term ‘sweets’, american english is ‘candy’ and australian/ new zealand english is ‘lollies’. ‘sweets’ is another term for ‘dessert’ in australia, not the various types of candy.
