Hi ChinesePod team, my question is this:
I understand that when using ‘question words’ with dou1 that the meaning is changed for example:
shei2 dou1 becomes everyone
shenme shihou dou becomes always etc.
However, I’m confused with the negation.
I think the structure should be:
question word + ye/dou + bu/mei
can you confirm?
I become confused in deciding where ye should be used opposed to dou and vice-versa as I don’t think they’re interchangeable. Are there any rules or is it context based?
