What's the meaning if "om" in this sentance?
Please refer to Arnauti's comment below.
Do 'tycker' and 'om' both mean 'like'?
They collectively mean like, you can't say manner tycker kvinnan or manner om kvinnan.
I think it is manneN not manneR
Om is preposition. Tycker means like and om is preposition which we should use with tycker.
No, tycker does not mean "like", and om doesn't function as a preposition here.
tycker om is a phrasal verb, meaning that it is a verb that consists of several words. You cannot remove either word and retain the meaning.
Is there a rule when to use "tycker om" and when "gillar"?
No, they're completely interchangeable. If you're aiming for really formal text, use tycker om. That's about it.
Is the reference for "likes" of personal interest, as in leading to asking for a date? Or is it more general in context, without any intimate nature?
A lot of people would probably assume a romantic interest is meant, but there's nothing beyond societal norms to suggest this. It could mean any kind of liking really. Maybe he's a cannibal.
Isn't it "thinking about"??
No, that would be tänker på. More about tycker om here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5892480
I said "the man like the woman" and forgot the s accidentaly but it was still counted wrong!
