The specific sentence that came up when I was practicing with my study buddy today was, "Do you know anyone who likes sports?"

My best guess was:


But since 好き is an adjective, not a verb, I'm not sure if I can put things together that way. Thanks for reading!

I agree with sbkgs4686 that your translation is great. Sometimes thinking about slightly different forms and examining the difference in nuances can be a worthwhile exercise, here are some:


が is often used when the context refers to one thing and you are trying to talk about something else. 「僕の友達に料理の好きな人がいるんだけどさ」「スポーツが好きな人は知っていますか?」


Much more informal and therefore it conveys the closeness appropriate and desirable among close friends.
