    laugh

    Hi everyone..

    I will be laughed by them.

    Is it a passive form clause?
    Does it work?


    Thanks

    Is it a passive form clause? Yes Does it work? It's strange to use such a passive; I believe "They will laugh at me" is much more natural. Anyway, note that you had missed "at".
