Take a look at these sentences:

a. This is a place good for business.
b. This is a good place for business.

Is there any difference between the meanings of the above sentences?

1 Answer 1


Your second sentence usually means that this place is a good place to conduct business. The first is incorrect as it stands, but corrected to This is a place that is good for business it would have the same meaning.

  • Thank you so much. Would you say 'a safe place from the storm' or 'a place safe from the storm'? It seems to me that 'from' is different from 'for'...

    I would say "This place is safe from the storm." Following this construction, "This place is good for business" can refer to something like a beach being good for business in the surf shop in the nearby town, as well as having the meaning in my answer.
