What is the meaning of "félnek-e"? What is the meaning of "félnek-e" in the following sentence? Remekművemet megmutattam a fölnőtteknek, és megkérdeztem őket, nem félnek-e tőle. What is the usage of "-e"? I can see another sentence of "-e". Meg akartam tudni, valóban megérti-e a dolgokat.

a hyphen and an e after a verb makes it an indirect question, same as adding "whether" in English, I asked them whether they would be scared Another example: Many times when you convert a question into indirect speech: Van Penzed? --> do you have money? Azt kerdezte hogy van-e penzem --> he asked me whether I have money Mesz egyedul? --> Are you going alone? Azt kerdezte megyek-e egyedul ---> He asked me whether I'm going alone I hope it helps
