I caught myself wondering if this question is right:

What do you don’t like to talk about?

I’ve made some searches to get to know if this is grammatically allowed, however, I haven’t found any answer that can fulfill my question. Can you guys tell if it is right or not?

  • Instead of - What do you not like to talk about?-, could I ask - What don´t you like to talk about?- Mar 27 '16 at 14:32

Since "don't" is a contraction of "do not," you have just written

What do you do not like to talk about

which can be rearranged in normal sentence order as

What you do do not like to talk about

Obviously, one of these do's should not be here. So, change it either to

What do you not like to talk about?

or

What don't you like to talk about?
