    Change for the worse/bad


    What is more common, to change for the bad, or to change for the worse?

    "The restaurant has changed for the worse recently"

    "He changed for the bad."

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Change for the worse/bad

    Use "changed for the worse". "changed for the bad" is not at all natural.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
