Good fine

  1. 1. Presentation by Primary Information Services www.primaryinfo.com
  2. 2. WHY IN AMERICA THEY SAY I AM GOOD INSTEAD OF FINE ?
  3. 3. What is the difference between I am fine and I am good? "I'm good" means that I am morally sound: for instance, I do good deeds, I think good thoughts. This latter meaning is being used more and more to mean "I am well". In UK English, "I'm fine" is the standard reply to "How are you?" "I'm good," means I am well behaved In short, “I'm fine” means I'm really not fine. It means that I need someone, anyone to help get me out of my own mind. Sometimes it means I need help.
  4. 4. Good 'Good' refers to quality or character of a person. For example, 'Sirisha is good' means she is virtuous or has good qualities. On the other side, 'well' refers to well being or good health, which is why, 'I am doing well' is more meaningful in this context
  5. 5. IS GOOD BETTER THAN FINE? BEING POSITIVE OR DESIRABLE IN NATURE; NOT BAD OR POOR: A GOOD EXPERIENCE; GOOD NE WS FROM THE HOSPITAL. AS YOU SEE, GOOD CAN SIMPLY MEAN "NOT BAD"; BUT FINE MEANS SUPERIOR, EXCELLENT. ROBUSTA'S ANSWER IS CORRECT WHEN THEY ARE BEING USED ATTRIBUTIVELY, TO DESCRIBE SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR.
  6. 6. What fine really stands for? Fouled Up, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional (Aerosmith; polite form) FINE.
  7. 7. Are you doing good or well? The rule of thumb is that good is an adjective and well is an adverb. Good modifies a noun; something can be or seem good. Well modifies a verb; an action can be done well. However, when you're talking about health, well can be used as an adjective.
  8. 8. Can you say I am doing good? If we reply: “I am good.” good is an adjective, modifying I, and am is the linking verb between the two; so it means either, “I'm a nice person,” which we would rarely say in public, or, “My life is okay,” which is what we intend.
  9. 9. When did people in the US start saying "you're good" or "you're fine" instead of "no problem" or "no worries?" I would use “no problem” or “no worries” after helping somebody, or after somebody thanks me. I prefer it over “you’re welcome.” To me, it seems more genuine, and it shows you’re not bothered by helping people. Instead of saying “you’re welcome” you can say “if you ever need anything else, let me know, I’d love to help!” It’s more straight forward, and it shows your intentions and help were genuine.
