Does anyone know what "går mot" means in English?
Depends on the context. Do you have more?
I thought it meant "I tend to do something" as in "I usually do something" but
perhaps it could also mean "I give my attention to something". Also I hear
things like "Når det går mot helg!" which I translate as "The weekend is coming
/ drawing near" but maybe that's just an idiom of some sort.
Usually it's referring to something in the near future, like "det går mot vår"
(spring is upon us / near), "kampen går mot uavgjort" (the match is heading
towards a draw).
"går mot" indicates the (likely) result of an ongoing prosess/change.
"Det går mot et et uavgjort resultat i fotballkampen". "Det går mot vanskelige
tider for bøndene."
