How do you define "いい"?


#1

I understand that it means “good”, but good can mean a lot of things. Would you use it like “Who’s a good boy”, as in well behaved?

Sorry for asking so many stupid questions


#2

Yes, you can say いい子 to say someone is a good boy or girl. You can also use that for animals.

Here’s a dictionary definition of いい from a Japanese dictionary. If you use chrome, you can use the translate function to get the general idea of the various ways it could be used in English. Although this is not a perfect solution to your answer. It’s a great way to practice being resourceful. https://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/jn/226039/meaning/m0u/

I’d say it has the same meanings as “good” in English. I can’t think of any exceptions, at least.
