They mean resemble and look like respectively. Some might say they're synonyms, but personally I think there's a slight difference.
Is this sentence the same as "Vem är lik barnet?" or does "är lik" mean something different than "liknar"?
Can you use "ut som" when we are talking about similarity between different objects? For example: det här korven smakar "ut som" lok. (This sausage tastes like onions, sorry for the mistakes).
No, you can't do that. "Ut som" goes with "se" but does not make sense with other verbs.
I answered that by mistake, and was marked correct. I think it is strictly speaking an ambiguous sentence.
Since we cannot tell who is subject and who is object in this sentence, both answers are correct. In spoken Swedish this would be resolved by stressing the subject.
Anrui, let me get this straight: Who looks like the child? = VEM liknar barnet? Who does the child look like? = Vem liknar BARNET? Is that correct?
I typed " who does the child take after?" But was marked wrong. Doesnt it mean the same?
