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.

    Think of 感兴趣 as an indivisible verb, rather than a V(感)+O(兴趣) phrase May 3, 2018 at 0:17

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?
