Synonyms of "Do" and their differences

Q: В чем разница между I don't really like it и I really don't like it ?
A: “I don’t really like it” usually means that you don’t actually like it.

“I really don’t like it” means that your feelings of dislike are pretty strong.

If you got a gift from your mother that you don’t actually like, you might whisper to your dad “I don’t really like it.”

If you eat something that you think tastes terrible, you might say “I really don’t like it.”
Q: В чем разница между I can’t do that и I can’t be doing that ?
A: This is tough because they mean the same thing. However, “I can’t do that” is used more commonly. A good rule is to say “I can’t do that” when you are talking about something in the present and use “I can’t be doing that” when talking about something in the past.

Example
Person 1: Do you want to drink tonight?
Person 2: I can’t do that, I have to drive home.

Example
She asked me if I wanted to go to the nightclub last night. I can’t be doing that anymore because I have to wake up early for work now.
Q: В чем разница между how do you like that и how you like that ?
A: It sounds more casual without "do".

The same is true for other sentences with "you".

-Are you going tomorrow?
-You going tomorrow? (more casual)
Q: В чем разница между 1. I don't like it very much. и 2. I don't like it that much. и 3. I don't really like it. ?
A: To me they all mean the same thing: I don’t like it but I tolerate it to be polite or if I have no better option.
Q: В чем разница между Why don't you care и Why do you not care ?
A: The ‘not’ does come after the ‘you’ to make ‘why do you not care?’

‘Why do not you care’ doesn’t make sense, as the syntax would be very confusing. In this context the verb ‘do’ must be followed by a noun. When abbreviated the same rules apply. Instead, the ‘not’ is removed from before the next verb and is added to ‘do’. Hope this makes sense.

A: The phrase, “Let me see here” would mean “let me look here”.

Now, I think you might be confused because there is a very common British pattern:
See here!
Now see here!
Now look here!
Now listen here!

These are all imperatives and they mean something like “I’m offended and you need to take me seriously!”.

In American English, here are some equivalent phrases:
Wait a minute!
Now look!
Now you listen to me!
Listen!
Now Listen!
