It means A loves B. Otherwise it would have been ”Hon älskar sig själv”.
It means a girl loves another girl.. or person with same gender. This case is also for he likes him. Got it?
How do I differentiate between hon and han? How do they sound different?
You can try to remember "hon" and "han" like:
hOn - wOman hAn - mAn
And as for how they sound different, try using the example for differentiating them when using a sentence.
In other words, when talking, try to pronounce the "o" in "hon" like the "o" in "woman", and the "a" in "han" like the "a" in "man".
((Hope this could help! ^o^))
Purely a vowel difference. Kind of like the enunciation of awe-n and on.
This applies to all kinds of relationships; romantic, family, friends, pets. This also applies to non humans: For example "Hon" could be a female dog who loves its female owner "henne", or the other way around. Or a female animal loving another female animal
Is this common in swedish? In english it would usually be changed to "(name) loves him/her" to avoid any possible confusion.
