Is there a difference if I say : I hear good or I hear well ?
I know that 'hear' is a linking verb and therefore I should use it with an adjective, but if I use it with an adverb will it still be correct?

'Sound' can be a linking verb: "It sounds good".
'Hear' is a normal transitive verb: "I heard the child crying."
But is it correct to say I can hear good instead of I can hear well?
Is there a difference in meaning between I hear good/well?
People do say "good" when they mean "well" in common use. But, strictly speaking "good" is an adjective and "well" is an adverb.
