Hello there,

Can we use how to replace what in below paragraph? Thanks all.

Cary Barbin is a deaf customer at Union Market. He explains through a interpreter what he likes about it.

"I love the fact that this is a sign language environment. Many of the employees sign, so I can order my food in American Sign Language."

    Can you say "He explains through an interpreter how he likes about it"? No, you cannot.

    He can explain how he feels about it: he feels happy, good, annoyed, etc. What he likes about it is the decor, the food, the architecture, etc.: he likes the decor etc. 'Like' and 'feel' take different kinds of complement, so they need different question words.
