La traduction de « bon » (et « bien »)

Exercices p. 176
  • Conforme à la norme : decent / right (adj.)
  • Agréable au goût / à l’odeur : tasty / nice / agreeable / pleasant (adj.)
  • Un bon papier à échanger contre quelque chose : a coupon / a voucher (n.)
  • Good est un adjectif, il donne donc des précisions sur un nom. Alors que well est un adverbe, il donne donc des précisions sur un verbe.
    Ex : I understand the trailer well. This is a good trailer.

Attention, avec les verbes de sensation (feel, look, smell, taste, etc.), les deux peuvent être utilisés mais ils n’ont pas la même signification.
Ex : You look good → on parle de l’apparence.
Ex : You look well → on parle de la santé.
