“没” 与“喜欢” (Y) 你不喜欢他。 (X) 你没喜欢他。 This sentence' structure is ... Subject + negative + Adjective + Object How do you explain ..... 你没喜欢过他。Thank you all! However, I really need to know what position "过" is in this sentence. Is it Adverbial to describe 没 ? But, since 没 is not a Verb, so Adverbial cannot used for it. Can I said 喜欢 is Verb and "过" is Adverbial to describe it? If so, it would make sense because the 过 can be used at both positive 你喜欢 "过"他. Or, it can used for the negative sentence 你没喜欢过他。 Let me know what you all think? Thank you all!

Chinese students who are born after 1990 never learned about Chinese grammar. So I would like to explain the sentence 你没喜欢过他。 in this way. Tom, Alice and I are close friend. T cared about A very much, just like A' elder brother. Later, T falls in love with Gina. A was really sad after hearing that and cried to me 'He is a L'arnacoeur!!!'. 'He did cares about you, A. However, there are 'cares' and 'cares'. I am soory, but 他没喜欢过你'. You can image another situation to say 你没喜欢过他.

我没喜欢过他 actually is 我没有喜欢过他 sounds like I have not ever liked him. 我不喜欢他=I dont like him 我没喜欢过他is wrong but you can change it into 我没(有)喜欢过他。

(Y) 你 不 喜欢 他。 <-- present tense (X) 你 没 喜欢 他。 <-- past tense

i think "你没喜欢过他" is ok.nothing wrong. “过” means "ever happened" here. (past perfect tense)
