Carolyn, a computer nerd, asks...
Is the following sentence gramatically correct? If so, what part of speech is the word 'good'? "I will fix it for good."
Anne answers...
Good is an adjective that has many meanings. In my dictionary the phrase "for good" is listed as #53. You use it when you mean "finally and permanently." So, yes, your sentence is grammatically correct, provided you really fix it forever.
