I'm pretty sure it wants you to say "the tea" as in, you don't like a certain tea, not tea in general. Not 100% sure, though!
Does "tycker om noe" mean "to like something"?
I wrote "I don't think about the tea".
"tycker om" with the stress on OM means "like". Think of it as one verb which just happens to consist of two words.
"noen" is not a word in Swedish, maybe you mean "något" or "någon".
"I don't think about the tea" should be "Jag tänker inte på teet".
Thanks a lot!
Sorry, I didn't know the word for "something" so I just used Norwegian. I guess "tycka om" is just a phrasal verb then :)
Why do you put "inte" before "om", and not behind "om" like e.g: jag drinker inte vatten? I thought ''inte'' came behind the verb
I believe that "tycker" is the verb and "om" is a preposition. Together, they form a verbal phrase that translates to "like," but "om" still isn't a verb itself. (An example in English would be "put off," a combination of a verb and a preposition that together means "delay.")
So, "inte" comes after the verb "tycker" but before the preposition "om."
You're right in principle, however Swedish grammarians describe om (which by the way must always be stressed in this usage) as either a verb particle or an adverbial, so it's not a preposition. tycka om is a particle verb, but the negation may get between the verb and the particle.
I understood "det" instead of "teet". I was wrong, alright, but would that be grammatically correct? Or how would you say "I do not like this"?
Yes, you can say Jag tycker inte om det, 'I don't like it'.
'I don't like this' would be either Jag tycker inte om det här or Jag tycker inte om detta.
I was wondering, is there a word for the verb 'dislike', or can you only say 'tycker inte om'?
The verb 'gilla' means the same as 'tycka om', so it's possible to use that: Jag gillar inte. But I haven't heard of a word for not liking sth. You could also say 'hatar' which means hate, though it becomes a little bit different then.
how do you say i'm thinking about/around a subject? does jag tycker (ämne) work? or can you say jag tycker om (ämne)? without it being I like the topic?
Do I have to add "et" or "t" to every word that doesn't really exist with an indefinite article (like vatten, te, olja, juice, ...) or does it depend on a rule or sth? Thanks :)
