I prefer another phrase from the course: "Socker är mat" (sugar is food).

Yep! And with Dutch vijand, as well as German Feind. :)

And maybe a link with "Fiel" or "Fiente" in French? (negative words)

No, neither of those is related.

Use "men" there instead of "utan", and it's a perfect sentence. :)

Fiende - what a false friend!

July 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/devalanteriel

Really? It corresponds perfectly to "fiend". :)

My knowledge of English language is imperfect, and I found out about the term "fiend" only now, sorry if this caused confusion. I was referring to the similarity with "friend", and how, conceptually, a "false friend" is an enemy. (Please feel free to delete my comment if it's not going to be useful to others.)
