Can you also use the verb détester as in je déteste
Yes, you can definitely use ‘détester’ where indicated, and in place of ‘haïr’, and probably would in most circumstances in everyday speech.
Haïr gets its own lesson as its conjugation is irregular in the present tense. ‘Détester’ is a regular -er verb, so no specific lesson needed in this section.
