How do you use "miedo"
To say "(you) Fear the monster." Would it be "Tienes miedo a la monstruo"??
This is a command in English, so wouldn't you have to use the imperative here? Something like "tenle miedo al monstruo."
Edit: Word order corrected below. Fixed now.
the sentences written by valentina_xx are ok. in english would be like "you are afraid of the monster"
Right, I understand that they are grammatically correct. But I'm not sure that they are used in the same context. In English, "fear the monster" is a command/instruction. The speaker is telling someone else to be afraid. On the other hand, when you include the subject "you", the sentence is just a description.
yes, in Spanish "Le tienes miedo al monstruo" is just a description
"fear the monster" would be "Tenle miedo al monstruo" is a command/instruction
hope this helps!
Yeah, I'm sorry. I thought you were talking about a description, not an instruction... anyway, it would be like rag81 said, "tenle miedo al monstruo" or "témele al monstruo" ;)
No worries. Honestly, it's hard to tell which way the original poster intended, since "you" was there, but in parenthesis.
Thanks for coming back to clarify.
So you are saying like giving a command?
(you) Fear the monster ~ Temele al moustro.
With miedo it doesn't apply the same way. Of the verb temer.
Tendras miedo al moustro.
Oh, in that case it would be "témele al montruo" or "tenle miedo al monstruo"
I thought they were talking about a description, like "you're afraid of the monster", because the guy wrote "tienes miedo al monstruo". Sorry :(
