"Do you like him?"
Translation:Kan du godt lide ham?
My answer "Kan du lide ham?" was accepted without the word godt. What does the word godt mean and what is it's implication in the word like? I assume this is an idiomatic phrase as the three words mean like. Also can the word godt always be omitted or was this a DL mistake to allow it?
Godt = "well" and is an optional intensifier in the phrase. As explained in the notes: "The word godt is not super important for the meaning and could be omitted, but it is nonetheless used a lot, and serves to enhance the liking somewhat."
Sounds pretty strange to german native speakers. "Kan godt lide" implies "Kann gut leiden" which means something just slightly above like "tolerate" but for sure far away from the meaning of "liking".
