Möjlig = possible Omöjlig = impossible So ... does that O represent some kind of negation?
Same as saying un- in english. Or less often (but in this case) i-.
helpful = hjälpsam
Unhelpful = ohjälpsam
what does the bit at the end "ligt" mean? i've seen it in a lot of words like "enligt" and some others i can't remember right now
it is like the German ending "-lich" which can be compared with the English ending "-ly"
- Actually, omöjlig is listed as an adjective, but omöjligt as an adverb. The adverb means "impossibly". But omöjligt is also the singular neuter form of the adjective omöjlig.
