Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Prepositional Phrase one. The prepositional
phrase today is for good. Okay. Let's take a look at the note. If someone does
something for good or something happens for good, it is permanent or forever. So
usually that's the end. It doesn't come back. It doesn't return. It's for good. All
right. For good can also mean that something is done for the benefit of
others or for the benefit of mankind or something like that.
Okay. So let's look at several examples here. Example number one. I think Bill and
Jane broke up for good this time. Their quarrel was too serious. I don't
think they will ever get back together again. Yeah. That's what we might say
somebody separated for good or broke up for good. Even though it's not really
good because it's probably divorce or or a breakup. But , but that's the way we use
it to mean permanently. Number 2 here. After he got a wake-up call from the
doctor, he decided to give up smoking for good. Yeah. Maybe the doctor gave him very
strong stern warnings. Like if you don't smoke ... if you don't stop smoking you know,
you're going to get lung cancer or something like that. Or you know you only
have so many years left. Anyway he got a wake-up call. So he decided to give up
smoking for good, for real this time. Never go back to it. All right. Number 3
here. He gave up being a lawyer for good after he realized that he , he helped to
free a pedophile that went back to commit crimes. Yes. Sometimes maybe
somewhere some lawyers feel guilty about something. Even though he was doing his job, he
didn't like the results. So maybe there was something that made him stop being a
lawyer. Okay. Good and four or five this is more like you know, for the good of
others. So let's look at number four. He decided to use some of his wealth for
good and donated to several charities. So you know, for the good of people or
for the good of others. And number five. He wants to use his fame for good and he
came out to support several causes or at least several causes he believed in. So
he's doing it for good, for the good of others or for the good of mankind. Okay,
Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
