1. I would like to know the meaning of the next sentence.
Who/Whom are we kidding?
2. I wonder why she said "A" instead of "B".
A: Whom are we kidding?
B: Who are we kidding?
2. I wonder why she said "A" instead of "B".- Lucy is a perfectionist.
He wrote the letter. Therefore, who is correct.
For who/whom should I vote?
Should I vote for him? Therefore, whom is correct.
Whom/Who are we kidding?
We are kidding him. Therefore, whom is correct
X We are kidding he. Is incorrect!
Like for instance:
We were kidding him about the girl who keeps ringing him up.
He kidded his wife into thinking he'd forgotten her birthday.
What I understood is she asked him the first question in the first picture on purpose; I think she kind of knew that he would give her the answer we see in the third picture. So we see she say 'whom are you kidding' which I don't understand ㅜ..ㅜ
So we see she say 'whom are you kidding' which I don't understand -- She says it because of what you already understand from your first comment. Lucy enjoys teasing him. She has chosen 'whom' merely because it is more correct and that is her character.
Anonymous:I'm from England and "whom are you kidding" sounds totally wrong to me. Perhaps its OK in American english ?
Unfortunataly due to the transitive nature of languages - I'm not entirely convinced there is a "correct" way of speaking. I realise this may cause some debate but if anything what "most people say" is the correct form language is ultimately defined by common usage. However this does not mean less commonly used terms are incorrect.
People are waiting to help.
