Duolingo, asking the hard-hitting questions.
Does "dricker" sometimes imply drinking alcohol as "drink" does in English? If someone asked me "why do you drink?" in English I would assume they were talking about alcohol.
Yes, it's the same in Swedish.
I'm definitely going to associate 'varför' with 'wherefore'
It's etymologically related for sure.
I think it would be more apt to say, "why for"
Wherefore literally means "why" (as in: "Romeo, why are you a Montague?" rather than "Romeo, where have you gone?")
kind of like in spanish where it's por que
Wherefore drinkest thou?
Your Honour... I did not want to but they invited me time and again

What is wrong with ´why are you drinking´
In hope of forgiveness from duo for breaking my streak
Varför sounds like the dutch "Waar Voor" means what for :p its weird to hear something so usual in a differnet way " even though what for can be used as why so its simular
Ugh! I'm having the hardest time mastering the Swedish "R" sounds. :(
Is this refering to drink beer or what?
Jag dricker för att glömma
These confounded people!

stay hydrated guys
Could this also be used for alcohol like "why do you drink - get drunk - ?" "because I'm an alcoholic" or something?
Would this be used in the English colloquialism of why do you drink (alcohol)? Like, when asking an alcoholic in a 12-step meeting "why do you drink? "

In english drinking in some contexts means specifically alcohol(ex: They went out for a night of drinking) is this the same with swedish?

Someone asked this two years ago but never got an answer: what is wrong with the answer “why are you drinking”?
In 2020, why don't you?
Because it helps my Swedish pronunciation
