something is what is + verb ing for present continuous I know it is correctly to say for example: that is what bugs me... what bugs me is... but I was wondering if it is possible to say something like: that is what is bugging me... for a present continuous. thank you in advance.

Yes, you can. But I don't really hear, "This is what's bugging me," by often. Most people say, "What bugs me is when...," or' "That really bugs me!" Or even, "That kind of stuff bugs me." I guess the closest thing to "This is what's bugging me," that people say often is, "This is bugging me/getting on my nerves." Or, "You/He/She is bugging me." Or "Quit bugging me." Keep in mind that "getting on my nerves" is more used than "bugging me" nowadays but you can still use bugging.

Yes, you can use whatever tense you'd like in the subordinate clause.
