    "the good"



    But money is always short. "Blankets are not cheap -- the good, thick ones are $12 to $13 each," Rifai said. "International organizations do not help us. We barely hear or see from the Red Cross or UNHCR."

    Does the good mean the best? Is it common expression among native English speakers? Why donít we use Irregular Comparison?

    Re: "the good"

    "Good" means "good". It's the opposite of "bad". It means nothing more and nothing less.

    This blanket is thick.
    This is a good blanket.
    This blanket is thin.
    This is a bad blanket.

    I imagine the best thick blankets available probably cost a lot more than $13!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
