I’m good!

È corretto utilizzare l’espressione “I’m good” per dire “sto bene”. Ho sempre pensato che si dicesse “I’m well”. Si tratta di un neologismo? Riccardo

You’re right. Traditionally, people say “I’m well,” but in recent years young Americans have started to say “I’m good” and this has been adopted by youngsters in other English-speaking countries. It’s also a way of saying “No thanks” when somebody offers you food or drink. “Would you like another beer?” “No, I’m good, thanks.” (equivale all’italiano: “No grazie, sono a posto così”)
