He is very fine to work with.
From the Cambridge dictionary I get two (relevant) meanings:
- SATISFACTORY (adjective)
- EXCELLENT (adjective)
To me these two meanings seem very different. While satisfactory sounds somewhat negative in this context (i.e. working with someone), excellent sounds very positive.
Q: do the meanings depend on the context around the sentence? For example, if the text around this sentence is very positive, then the meaning probably is toward 'excellent'?
