Why not 'misslyckar'??


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/g.uh

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

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

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!

how do you say, Why did she fail?

Varför misslyckades hon?

Why is my answer (myslyckas) not recognised as a typo, which it was! Is myslyckas an actual word?


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

I believe Duolingo can only recognise typos that are off by a single character, but "myslyckas" is off by two.

Why is "Why did she fail?" incorrect?
