Why not 'misslyckar'??
Lyckas and misslyckas are deponent verbs https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6094592
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
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
how do you say, Why did she fail?
Varför misslyckades hon?
It sound a little bit like someone is called Miss Lyckasson. *g
Sounds like miss-clicked to me.
