Why does 'till mycket' not work? I've been trying to google it but couldn't find any website that explains it. :/

Prepositions vary greatly between languages, and thus they'll have to be learnt by heart in many cases. Where English uses "too" (not to be confused with "to"!), Swedish uses "för" instead.

För mycket = Too much

För liten = Too small

För stark = Too strong

etc...

Do you get it?

Ah, I see, thank you!

For some reason I thought that 'till mycket' had worked before. I guess I just had a bit of a brain fart. It seems really obvious now.

All's well that ends well. :)
