Can it be "Apakah kamu menertawakan SAYA"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

Yes.

1st person = saya, aku.
2nd person = kamu, Anda, kalian (plural)

Why not: "apakah kamu tertawa aku"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

tertawa = to laugh

menertawakan = to laugh at (someone/something)

Oh, okay, thanks, that's great, except ... when I hovered over "laughing", the only word offered was "tertawa"!
