What's the difference between bra och god?
When it comes to food, bra mat is healthy food, while god mat is tasty food.
So, that would mean that 'god mat' describes 'fast food' - Ha!
'bra' is the general word for 'good'. 'god' can only be applied to specific kinds of words, 'god mat' is a very common one. "bra mat" is not wrong.
shouldnt "smaskig" be an acceptable translation of "tasty"?
Why isn't "maten verkar läcker" accepted?
Today, läcker is rarely used to describe the taste of food (but it does happen!). Instead, its meaning has shifted to be used more often for looking good.
Good to know. Because that's what my dictionary told me. But seeing it was a German/Swedish dictionary and "tasty" means "lecker" in German, I understand the confusion. Thanks for clearing that up!
What is wrong with "maten ser ut smaklig" instead of "verkar" ?
If you use ser ut, the adjective has to go between the verb and the particle. Maten ser smaklig ut is a correct sentence and an accepted answer (although ser ut means 'looks' and verkar is 'seems').
Can gott also mean tasty or only delicious?
Varför inte bra?
so swedish doesnt have word for tasty?
