"When nothing seems to go right."
Please tell me if "go" means "change" and "right" is an adjective which means "correct".
Go means happen, and right means (in) the way I expect (it to happen).
go right, to happen as expected, wanted or intended; to be successful or without problems. Example: Nothing ever goes right for him. go right - Definitions from Dictionary.com
Clark, I've a question too. What test determines the function of right? Adjectives, not adverbs, are used after the verb seem; however, right occurs after go. That is, the meaning is go right, not seems right. Or is it that to go functions as a nominative absolute phrase (an object) and therefore takes an adjective?
e.g. If you want things to go right, ...
If everything goes right, ...
Things will go right if you ...
To decide whether 'right' is an adj or an adv, let's substitute other adj/adv for it in the expression 'to go right':
If things go wonderful/wonderfully, ... .
So if you choose 'wonderful', then 'right' is an adj, if 'wonderfully', then it's an adverb.
You make a decision.
