Structure negative in the present simple tense

We construct a negative sentence by adding the word „not“ after the verb „do/does“.

If we talk about the 3rd person singular, we use the verb „does not/doesn‘t“. If we talk about any other person, we always use „do not/don‘t“.

The important thing to note here is that we do not combine a suffix with the verb „does“.

We cannot construct a sentence like the following: „He does not likes bananas,“. Instead, we only use the verb in its base form instead of combining it with a suffix, as we do in affirmative sentences. The correct sentence will be: „He does not like bananas.“
