ASK A QUESTION difference between Temer and Tener miedo.
I thought when expressing fear of something you had to say " I have fear of" using the conjugations of tener, but then i read the use of it with the conjugations of temer....which one is correct.
I've only seen it used with tener, but now i see it being used with the other as well
shouldnt the phrase "she is afraid of fire" be "Ella tiene miedo de fuego"?
Temer in some contexts also means "to suspect" or "to believe" (sospechar o creer); I found out that temer is a bit more formal than tener miedo.
Temer and tener miedo have the same connoation, they refer to more deep seated fears and phobia Asustar, from what I have gathered is more like momentary fears like when something or something startles. Technically tener miedo means to be afraid.
