Why not 'misslyckar'??

The same happens with previous exercise. Was said minns. :/

If lyckas=win, then misslyckas=no win=lose, right?

For me, lose and fail are not synonyms


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HelenCarlsson

win = vinna
succeed = lyckas
lose = förlora
fail = misslyckas

I see... from a previous exercise I assumed lyckas=win, now I see I was a bit off the right track. Tack!

In dutch we have the same. Something ' lukt' or 'mislukt' . And I agree with Helen

Varför misslyckades hon?

It sound a little bit like someone is called Miss Lyckasson. *g
