New Post: Paul Brians Discusses "Well and Good" + good/well

You do something well, but a thing is good. The exception is verbs of sensation in phrases such as “the pie smells good,” or “I feel good.” Despite the arguments of nitpickers, this is standard usage. Saying “the pie smells well” would imply that the pastry in question had a nose. Similarly, “I feel well” is also acceptable, especially when discussing health; but it is not the only correct usage.



Recycling cartoons from the book is all well and good, but how about we all go read Paul Brians’ latest blog post.

We bid farewell to the podcast some time ago, but you can still browse and listen to episodes.
