Pasti Anda pernah mendengar frasa "are you kidding me?". Frasa ini sangat sering digunakan dalam film-film Hollywood maupun film berbahasa Inggris lainnya. Frasa "are you kidding me" jika diartikan ke dalam bahasa Indonesia maka memiliki arti atau makna "apakah kamu bercanda". Frasa ini sendiri merupakan suatu ekspresi bahwa sesuatu itu sangat benar, atau bisa juga sangat salah. Kalau digambarkan dalam bahasa Indonesia maka contohnya seperti pada percakapan berikut ini:

A: Apakah kamu bisa berenang?

B: Apakah kamu bercanda? Aku juara satu renang tingkat provinsi.

Pada percakapan di atas, B menggunakan frasa "apakah kamu bercanda?" sebagai counter atau sanggahan dari pertanyaan "apakah kamu bisa berenang?". Oleh sebab itu, karena frasa ini berfungsi sebagai counter, maka tidak bisa frasa ini diucapkan oleh seseorang tanpa terlebih dulu muncul suatu pertanyaan atau pernyataan dari orang lain dalam suatu percakapan atau dialog.

Nah setelah mengetahui ilustrasi di atas, kita bisa membuat contoh kalimat bahasa Inggris menggunakan frasa "are you kidding me". Berikut ini contohnya:

Contoh 1

A: Do you like to dance? (Apakah kamu suka menari?)

B: Are you kidding me? I’d rather dance than eat! (Apakah kamu bercanda? Aku lebih suka menari daripada makan!)

Contoh 2

X: Would you like to go shopping tomorrow? (Apakah kamu mau pergi belanja besok?)

Y: Are you kidding me? I have to study! (Apakah kamu bercanda? Aku harus belajar!)
