Communication Tip #9
De-murking the WELL/GOOD conundrum: When do we use WELL and GOOD?
WELL is an adverb. It modifies verbs and answers the question How:
- He slept well, ran well, spoke well, worked well.
GOOD is an adjective. It modifies nouns and answers the question WHAT (kind/type):
- He had a good sleep, good run, good speech and he did a good job. Usually when you use “good,” a noun follows it.
So, heed well this good advice!
