I'd say then you'd be translating another sentence Jag ogillar februari instead.
I don't know if that was correct, but I was trying to say "the many answers" the de represents the 'the'.
It's correct. It's the double (or triple) definiteness thing. When we have a definite noun with an adjective, we need both a definite article ('de' here) in front of it, the definite ending on the adjective, and the definite end article on the noun (svaren).
@Arnauti (or whoever happens to know):
would 'de' as a definite article also be pronounced as /dom/ or does that only happen when it means "they"?
@konnilee Yes, as far as I can think of "de" is always pronounced "dom" in everyday speech. In any case, it is in the case of this sentence and other sentences like it.
Not liking something and disliking something aren't necessarily the same thing. If I don't like chocolate, maybe I'm just impartial to it. (For the record, I do like chocolate)
jag tycker inte pa februari why you do tanker rather than tycker ? @Arnauti
"Tycker om" can mean either "likes" or "has an opinion of" depending on where you put the emphasis when you say it. If you emphasise "om" it means "like" and if you emphasise "tycker" it means "has an opinion of". However, they also tend to be used in different contexts and even asking if you like someone and asking if you have an opinion about someone would be different sentences, so you can tell which a person means even if it's over text and you can't hear emphasis.
- Tycker du om honom? = Do you like him?
- Har du en åsikt om honom? = Do you have an opinion of him?
- Vad tycker du om honom? = What do you think about him?
- Vad tycker du om gällande honom? = What do you like about him?
- Jag tycker illa om honom. = I dislike him. (You can kind of see where the relationship lies here, as this sentence also gives the impression of "I think badly of him".)
"Tänka på" however never uses "tycker om" since it just expresses that you have it (or in this case, don't have it) in mind, whereas "tycker om" expresses having a certain opinion.
