Tycker = like/likes So... What is "om"?? Thats the first use of it ive seen, and i don't understand its purpose in the sentence. Can anyone explain?
Tyker om is literally: think about. They don't have a singular word that means 'like'. Instead, if they 'like something', they instead say they 'think about it' which makes sense because you generally think about something if you like it.
No this not altogether right. We say "tycker 'om" (stress on last syllable) for "like" and " 'tycker om" (stress on first syllable) for "think about".
Vad 'tyckte du om filmen? Tyckte du 'om den?
What did you think about the film? Did you like it?
The singular word for 'like' is 'gillar'.
As far as I can tell, 'gillar' and 'tycker om' can be used interchangeably, but gillar is just a little more informal.
