The adjective fair can mean quite large/big or many in quantity or degree.

Can "fair enough" mean "It's quite big enough" or "It's quite much/many enough"?


No. Fair enough is a set expression meaning that something is reasonable/all right.

One could come up with a sentence like

You proposed a split of the treasure which isn't fair enough.

but 'fair' still carries the meaning of 'reasonable', and not 'quite large'.

  • Thank you, so is there an expression for something or sometimes it's much/many/big enough? – Eugene Rider Mar 9 '17 at 7:34
  • Maybe sufficient? – Glorfindel Mar 9 '17 at 16:43
  • Hm... it's ok but like some phrases maybe? – Eugene Rider Mar 10 '17 at 6:13
  • That sounds like a new question. Be sure to read what's required for a good phrase request, or your question might get closed. – Glorfindel Mar 10 '17 at 6:23
