We learned

我對什麼什麼很感興趣

But when I wrote

xx我對明星一點興趣都不感

It was corrected to

我對明星一點興趣都沒有

What are some other nouns that take a different verb in the negative?

  • see bkrs for examples of 不感兴趣:他对音乐不感兴趣,对...不感兴趣, also see example with 一点儿不感(到):但是目前他对她们不忠,他却一点儿不感到内疚. – user6065 May 2 '18 at 13:56
  • @user6065 does this suggest the correction was unnecessary? – Ludi May 2 '18 at 14:05
  • 我對明星一點興趣都不感 --> 我對明星一點都不感興趣 – Tang Ho May 2 '18 at 14:57

    examples with 一点儿+NP+也(都) 没有 :一点儿用处也没有 utterly useless 一点儿才能也没有,一点儿胃口也没有,一点儿坏处也没有,他一点儿筋骨囊也没有,一丁点儿毛病都没有, – user6065 May 2 '18 at 16:04

    Think of 感兴趣 as an indivisible verb, rather than a V(感)+O(兴趣) phrase – Jason Swift May 3 '18 at 0:17

我對明星一點興趣都不感

Your problem is not that verb itself, but the word order. The correct order is: 我對明星一點 都不感興趣.

Hope this could help you.

Although you can often split up verbs and nouns, there are some which feel awkward when you do it. 感兴趣 is one of them. Even though 感 is a verb and 兴趣 is a noun, it doesn't feel right to say 一点兴趣都不感. The normal way to say it is 一点都不感兴趣. As for "why?" I've no idea.

I also can't think of any nouns that demand a different verb in the negative.

  • can you think of more un splittable examples? – Ludi May 3 '18 at 8:31
