Hello^^

First of all thank you for all the hard work you've put into this site and translations! I have recently started learning Korean, and the grammar bank has really helped me out!

I did have a question about 의미인 걸까
I understand that 의미 is "meaning" and 걸까 is a question form, but I don't understand what 인 is for. Could you explain this please?

Thank you ^^

Since 의미 ( meaning ) is a noun , we add 인걸까? For example , is it a dream ? means 꿈인걸까? ( 꿈 :a dream). As an infinitive form , 'noun이다' is ' to be noun'.
이다 is also conjugated into 이에요 in the present tense , which I think you are familiar with.
Thank you for your question and if you still have problems , please feel free to ask me.
