I know that the antonym of good is bad, but I’ve always wondered what the antonyms of well (as in a adjective: “I am well”) and swell (as in a adjective: “a swell morning today”) because these words are used very differently, and not interchangeable, therefore, their antonyms aren’t either.

  • I'm doing well - I'm doing badly/poorly
